Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha vowed to make the country a food industry “superpower” in the next 20 years with a new strategy.

Prayut visited Chanthaburi on Wednesday to inspect the government’s initiatives, including reforms in agricultural cooperatives and fruit production, at the Fruitfital Fair 2017.

Chanthaburi is one of the country’s major fruit production areas. He said Thailand may not be able to become a military superpower but it’s possible for the country to become a superpower in the food industry in the next 20 years.

The premier said earlier during the trip that the government had been supporting farmers and fruit growers to stand on their own feet, by not just inflating farm product prices which is not sustainable in the long run.

They should be able to develop and produce their products with improved quality so that they can compete in the market in the long run, he said.
