The meeting acknowledged the results of measures implemented under the fruit development strategy (2015 to 2019).
The agencies considered the draft operational plan for fruit development (2022 to 2026). This plan consists of four strategies:
First, the plan aims to increase the capacity of fruit production management, as well as improving fruit products standards.
Second, the plan aims to improve the competitive capacity of fruit production and marketing by using technology and innovation.
Third, the plan aims to create strength and equality for farmers and fruit institutions in Thailand.
Fourth, the plan aims to help manage resources sustainably in the production of fruits. Also, the production should be eco-friendly, and the operation of this strategy will be collaborated with the Fruit Board.
In addition, the meeting agreed that the operational plan should be consistent with the 20-year national strategy (2018 to 2037), as well as the 20-year agricultural and cooperative strategy (2017-2036), which were the direction and framework of the plan’s drafting.
