Poultry major contributor in Thai farm sector
The Thai agricultural sector has continued to grow,
achieving a high expansion rate of 5.3% in the first quarter of 2007
According to the Office of Agricultural Economics, major crops and poultry
products were the main contributors that have driven the high growth of the
nation's farm sector.
The key products' prices remained high during the period due to a growth in
exports and demand on the world market, despite the stronger Thai baht.
The Office expects that the country's agricultural sector would grow
further by 4-5% throughout the rest of 2007.
Its report suggested that the Thai government have developed an efficient
logistics network nationwide for swift product distributions to local and
international markets with reduced costs to off-set challenges caused by the
strengthened Thai currency, and that local producers continue to develop the
quality of their farm products.
