Bangkok (NNT/VNA) –
Thailand has become the world’s number one exporter of sweet corns and related products for 10 consecutive years, said the Department of Foreign Trade.

The Director-General of the Department of Foreign Trade, Adul Chotinisakorn, said exports of sweet corns and related products during the first 11 months of 2018 amounted to 236,775 tonnes, an increase of 6.7 percent, worth 7.32 billion baht, up by 2.2 percent, with the highest number of exports to Japan, followed by the Republic of Korea and Taiwan.

As a result, Thailand has become the world’s number one exporter of sweet corns and related products for 10 consecutive years because the country has the potential to produce quality sweet corns with a good taste as well as to develop the corn strains.

The climate of Thailand is also suitable for growing sweet corns. - NNT/VNA
