Seven OTOP goods selected from Lamphun province got the nod to be displayed during the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, while the sales target for OTOP products had reached the more than 900 million baht mark in revenues this year.

Lamphun Deputy Governor Surong Prabrok said that Lamphun OTOP products were well received by the committees responsible for granting opportunities to display goods at the APEC Fair, which could help expand opportunities for Thailand’s OTOP goods to enter the international marketplace.

The Lamphun products displayed at the fair included yok dok silk from Pensiri Mai Thai and Tambon Suntonthong weaving group; fabric made from the textile weaving group from Ban Mae Khanand, Mae Tha district, Lamphun and textile products by Boon Muang Cotton, Pa Sang District, Lamphun; two categories of flower vase products, both and cylindrical, made by Satit Kaewkad, Mae Tha district, Lamphun; and vases from Chuan Long Ceramics, Muang district, Lamphun.

Phayao authorities take trade mission to China

A government team led by the Phayao governor made a short visit to China to carry out a feasibility study on trade opportunities for Thai crops. Phayao province wishes to push agricultural products from this northern province to break into the China marketplace, especially rice and rubber, which could be exported to China through the newly opened Chiang Saen Port in Chiang Rai.

This follows the government’s support of international trade transactions between Thailand and China, which now come under a free trade policy agreement for the bilateral countries, said Borworn Rattanaprasit, the Phayao governor.

The team included representatives from the rice and rubber manufacturing sectors, along with representatives of the provincial committee on industrial federation, and the chamber of commerce.

The trip-takers also studied the possibility of Thai trade opportunities, marketing channels, and the potential of Chiang Rung district in Sibsong Panna province in southern China, which could be linked for trade and tourism promotion.
