BANGKOK (The Nation/ANN): The Commerce Ministry’s core missions this year are to boost farmers' income and to ease people's living costs, said minister Jurin Laksanawisit on Thursday (Jan 7).

Measures implemented by the ministry to meet those goals include the price guarantee scheme for farmers, the subsidised shopping scheme, and the push to expand Thai food’s share of the global market.It will also continue to promote the use of digital platforms for exports and exhibitions, he added.

Meanwhile, the ministry will accelerate negotiations for free trade agreements with countries and territories around the world.

Last month the ministry’s Department of Trade Negotiations released a study on the pros and cons of resuming free-trade talks with the European Union, for Jurin to consider.

Jurin said the ministry will also continue to develop new online services to boost ease of doing business. - The Nation/Asia News Network
