Government comes up with 5-year export plan

The Department of Export Promotion has come up with a five-year plan to drive exports and maintain sustainable growth for Thailand after it was hit badly by last year’s global economic crisis. The plan, to be put up for Commerce Minister Porntiva Nakasai’s approval soon, should be implemented this year and run until 2014. The scheme will not only focus on strengthening Thailand’s competitiveness now that the Asean Free-Trade Agreement has been implemented, but also work to raise its bargaining power in the global market.
