The National Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries announced on Thursday that Argentine grapes and cherries will now be able to enter the Thai market. 

Thailand is an important market in Southeast Asia for Argentina. Agroindustrial products - mainly soybean meal, wheat, hides and skins, and fish (mainly shrimp) - worth US$ 488 million were exported to Thailand in 2018.

Between January and July 2019, national agribusiness exports to Thailand reached US$ 349 million, a 3% increase on the same period in 2018.

Thailand's fresh and dried fruit market is a great opportunity for Argentina. In 2018, Thailand imported fresh and dried fruits worth US$ 867 million, of which fresh grapes represented US$ 148 million and cherries US$ 16 million.
