The Department of International Trade Promotion's online business matching (OBM) negotiations with Myanmar and Laos to help Thai logistics operators has yielded a trade value of more than Bt130 million, director-general Somdet Susomboon said on Wednesday.
The two sets of OBM negotiations covered joint ventures, business cooperation, transportation and building a network between Thai operators and their counterparts in Myanmar and Laos.
Online negotiations between Thai logistics operators and their Myanmar counterparts on December 18, 2020, created a trade value of more than Bt10.9 million, and talks with Laotian operators on January 26 yielded a trade value of over Bt120 million.
The OBM activities are in line with the policy of Deputy Prime Minister and Commerce Minister Jurin Laksanawisit to promote Thai logistics entrepreneurs and develop their operations in delivering goods to the other Mekong countries, while expanding the kingdom’s regional logistics service network.
