    UAE interested in purchasing Thai rice: Vice Commerce Minister

    ANN/THE NATION – The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is interested in purchasing Thai rice, Vice Commerce Minister Sansern Samalapa said yesterday. His statement came after discussions with Assistant Minister for Economic and Trade Affairs at the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Abdulnasser Jamal Alshaali on Monday.

    He said the UAE could be a gateway for Thai exports – especially agricultural products and food – to countries in the Middle East and North Africa.

    Thailand, meanwhile, would enable the UAE to penetrate the Asean market.

    Sansern went on to say that the UAE is interested in making a purchase contract for Thai rice, while the Gulf nation also saw an opportunity for the private sector of both countries to jointly invest in rice manufacturing in the future.

    The UAE is interested in operating a telecommunications business in Thailand as well, Sansern said.

    “The UAE is working on free trade agreements with many countries, especially those in Asean,” he said.

    Sansern said the Emirates has also invited Thailand to consider a comprehensive economic partnership agreement between the two countries.
