BANGKOK, 22 August 2012 – Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Wednesday met with the ministers overseeing economic affairs and related agencies to find guidelines of assistance for exporters in case they are affected by the global economic downturn.
Ms. Yingluck’s meeting with the relevant ministries and agencies at Government House today focused on measures to help Thai exporters after the National Economic and Social Development Board revised the country’s export growth target down to 7.3% from 15%. Sources said the Ministry of Commerce had submitted the results of its study on the export situation to the meeting in an effort to help export expand in line with the target.
The meeting also considered the private sector’s requests for assistance from the government for exporters. Most of the requests concerned export regulations and facilitation of trade without using more budgets.
