BANGKOK, 30 April 2014 (NNT) – The Commerce Ministry is set to organize “THAIFEX - World of food ASIA 2014” at IMPACT, with an aim to promote the popularity of Thai food in the international community.

Ms Nuntawan Sakuntanaga, director-general of the International Trade Promotion Department (DITP), has revealed that the combined value of Thai food exports last year totaled 25 billion US dollars or approximately 787 billion baht, with canned and processed food products topping the list, followed by rice, frozen shrimp, and processed fruit and vegetables.

As this year’s exports have been heavily affected by the political turmoil, the DITP will play host to “THAIFEX - World of food ASIA 2014” in May to once again trigger the food export industry as well as to prepare the Thai food entrepreneurs for the advent of ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015.

“THAIFEX - World of food ASIA 2014” will run from May 21 until May 25 at IMPACT Muang Thong Thani. Visitors will be offered with quality food products from 1,500 companies in Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Italy, Cambodia, Brail, Brunei, Singapore, Turkey, and Vietnam.

Wow.....free food........must visitsmile.png

As about, "this year’s exports have been heavily affected by the political turmoil" can't understand it.

What has the political turmoil to do with exports of food?

Or it's another case of blaming somebody else, usual in Thailand, for their own incompetence.

Please, someone explain to me how the political turmoil has affected Thai exports? The channels of distribution are still open and the THB has weakened vs the USD during the protests (making Thai exports more attractive).

Yes, non payments under populist policies have hurt production, but that has little to do with the political turmoil and more a failure of the government, in my opinion, to budget for payments they knew they had to pay that were coming due.

Please explain. What does the caretaker government mean when they say Thai exports are down due to the political turmoil? If they said tourism is down, I would agree, but exports?

Well, apparently, something happened to the value of rice and the standard of rice stored in Thailand.

Seems that Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Italy, Cambodia, Brazil, Brunei, Singapore, Turkey, and Vietnam will all make a killing at IMPACT.

THAIFEX sounds like a nasty disease you get from eating street food

It's actually a very big international food and food technology exposition. Very well done, professionally managed, and very interesting. Sorry, farang cynics, but it's true. I go every year.

The Thai press should provide some additional detail here regarding what the rationale is behind food exports being "heavily affected" by the Thai political turmoil.
