The EUs new tariff under the new GSP will take effect in 18 months. Fifty-seven Thai items are likely to be dropped from the new GSP. Commerce Minister Boonsong Teriyapirom said Thai delegation will travel to Europe at the end of July in order to clarify to its delegates that some of the Thai goods should still be maintained in the GSP list for the Thai entrepreneur ability to compete.

Thailands income per capita currently exceeds US$3,700/year, the amount indicated by the EU for countries to receive its generalised system of preferences. Regarding the ongoing H1N1 pandemic in China which might affect Thai chicken exports to the EU, Mr Boonsong said he believed such goods will not be impacted. Thailands poultry farming is managed under a closed system with controllable prevention, he said.
