Government is Seriously Expanding Rubber Markets


Nov 29  – Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha vowed to boost marketing campaigns for Thai rubber exports and support the development of rubber products.

Gen Prayut sent his message while opening Thailand Rubber Expo 2019 at the IMPACT exhibition and convention complex in the Muang Thong Thani estate in Nonthaburi province.

At the exposition venue, the prime minister said he was glad to meet rubber-related ministers from friendly countries and ASEAN member states.

“Today sees great cooperation to develop Thai natural rubber with technologies. In the past, the growth of natural rubber business depended on prices. At present, it concerns exports. We must achieve sustainable development to reduce inequality. There must be new markets. The government actively tries to find markets. Apart from China, India and Turkey, I ordered marketing campaigns to reach emerging markets in Africa where rubber can be used to build roads for the ongoing development of countries there,” Gen Prayut said.

Thailand Rubber Expo was aimed at being a venue for business negotiations of local and foreign operators in rubber business, promoting rubber products of Thai farmers and operators, and presenting Thailand’s potential as a leading producer and exporter of rubber products.

The exposition included exhibitions on rubber innovation and research and about 250 booths of rubber products. Thailand Rubber Expo will continue until Dec 1. (TNA)
