    Thailand Signs New Tariff Rate Quota Agreement with European Union

    BANGKOK (NNT) - Thailand and the European Union (EU) have agreed on a new tariff rate quota deal, under which a predetermined amount of the countryís goods can be exported to the bloc at pre-Brexit tax rates.

    Thailandís permanent representative to the World Trade Organization (WTO), Pimchanok Pitfield, has signed the agreement with Jos Fernando Costa Pereira, Portugalís ambassador and permanent representative to the EUís Political and Security Committee (PSC) in Brussels, Belgium.

    The agreement, which replaces a similar agreement, which had to be renegotiated following the United Kingdomís departure from the economic bloc on Jan 1st, will come into force next month.

    Ms. Pimchanok said products covered by the agreement include rice, poultry and fishery products, which Thailand will still be able to export to the EU with the same trade privileges extended before Brexit. Export duty reductions will be sought in separate trade negotiations, which will be held between Thailand and the EU, as well as the United Kingdom.
