Thailand Should Benefit From ASEAN Integration Of Member Organic Production, Export

December 18, 2010: 09:31 AM EST

With ASEAN encouraging and integrating organic production and export among its 10 member nations, Thailand stands to benefit if its farmers can focus on adopting organic production methods. Commerce Minister Porntiva Nakasai said that  Thailand could be used as a manufacturing and exporting center to countries beyond the region. Thai organic exports account for 0.21 per cent of the total global trade value of organic products, which is slated to reach $60 billion in 2010 . The country’s organic industry association expects the value of Thai organic exports will grow by 10 percent in 2011 to $119.5 million. Organic products targeted for export are rice, fruits, coffee, vegetables and garments.
