Herbs have been considered highly valuable goods in Thailand for many years. The Government has long given precedence to growing herbs and the production of related products, as they are a group of high-value economic crops. Herbs are ingredients in many products, ranging from food, drinks, cosmetics, and supplements to medications. This keeps the herb market growing significantly, with little competition. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, exports are as high as during normal times, especially with orders from China, Vietnam, and the USA. The Government is ready to support all related organizations to help develop herbal products and to double sales, from 180 billion baht to 360 billion baht, by the end of 2021. By achieving this goal, Thailand would become No. 1 in ASEAN for herb exports. (07/10/2020)
