Move to link central fruit markets with China to boost exports

The Department of Internal Trade (DIT) plans to link Thailand’s central fruit markets with those of China to expand the trading channel for Thai fruits, Whichai Phochanakij, the department’s director-general, said recently.

 

“The central markets the DIT aims to link are those being promoted by the DIT,” he said. “This operation will be managed in advance in order to serve fruits that will come into the Thai market in the future.”

 

Previously, the DIT had linked the “Emerald” fruit market in Chumphon province with the Commercial Association for Sustainability of Agriculture and China Agriculture Wholesale Market. This move helped increase Thai fruit exports to China.

 

In addition, the DIT plans to set up an Agricultural Grading Quality Centre, which can provide numerous services related to agricultural products, such as product quality sorting, residue and disease checking, and packaging.

 

Furthermore, the DIT is taking measures to expedite the sale of lychees, which will enter the market in February. The DIT is collaborating with airlines to allow their passengers to load upto 20kg of lychees free of charge.

 

The DIT also will provide fruit boxes to the plane passengers. This measure was successful last year in boosting sales of southern fruits like mangosteen, rambutan and langsat. “Four airlines joined hands with us in this promotion last year. We expect more airlines to join this year,” the director-general added.

They are going to make a duffel battle to find out which country uses the most pesticides in the cultivation of fruits and vegetables?

It's not impossible that Thailand wins :wacko:

Why not trade Thai fruit for more Mekong flow?  Prayut’s best buddy, China has stolen the Mekong.

Most likely more fruit from China will flow down 'The Channel' than what will flow up it; the Chinese only ever play to win !

So they will check exports for excess chemical residue, but not for their own people?

Will this mean that all the best quality fruits will be exported like the durian and lychees are already and the prices for the lesser quality leftovers supplied to the locals will increase?

You forgot to mention the mangosteens...we only get tiny old ones on the markets in BKK...
