3 types of Thai export to grow this year: Commerce Ministry

Thai exports of farm products, products related to working from home, and products to combat Covid-19 will continue to grow this year, said the Commerce Ministry’s Trade Policy and Strategy Office on Tuesday.

Among Thai exports expected to grow are rice, canned food, pet food, computers, rubber gloves and medical products, said Pimchanok Vonkorpon, the office’s director-general.

However, Thailand would continue to closely monitor the Covid-19 situation in its major trading partners, she added.

CLMV (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam) markets have yet to recover from the pandemic, she noted.

She advised exporters to reap benefits from Thailand’s competitive edge as a member of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership Summit (RCEP).

The country should also seek ways to expand its market share in the major economies of the US, China, Germany, Japan and the UK, she added.
