Thailand allows unlimited soybean imports
Animal feed and livestock associations in Thailand will
be allowed to import unlimited amounts of soybean meal from World Trade
Organisation (WTO) member countries in 2007.
However, feed and livestock associations must purchase soybean meal from
local vegetable oil refineries at baht 9.85 (0.21 Euro) per kilogramme to
qualify for import permission.
Soybean imported from non-WTO countries will be
taxed at 119%. Soybean meal from countries in the Asian Free Trade Area will be
taxed 5%. No taxes will be paid for produce from Australia and New Zealand,
which have free trade deals with Thailand.
