Thailand monitors EU poultry tariff revision
Ministry gears up to seek compensation if export volumes fall.
Thailand, a major chicken exporter to the EU, is monitoring the revision of poultry tariffs set by Brussels that could make exports difficult, according to the New Europe.
Though the EU is yet to decide if it will hike tariffs or limit import quotas, the ministry is readying to quickly seek compensation for losses if Thailand's export volume to the EU market drops, a ministry source was quoted as saying.
The EU had recently informed the WTO of its intention to change import duties on duck and goose liver; processed chicken; raw duck, goose and guinea chicken; and processed duck, goose and guinea chicken.
Thailand had exported 98.6 million euro (US$141.7 million) worth of the same items last year.
