Phuket Governor promotes production of local fruit

PHUKET: Phuket Governor Nisit Jamsomwong signed an agreement on Monday to boost production of the local jungle fruit ‘som kwai‘ (garcinia atroviridis).

During a meeting on Knowledge-Based One Tambon One Product (KBO), which is aimed at integrating relevant sectors to boost the value of its products, Governor Nisit noted that som kwai have excellent nutritional and medicinal properties.

“This agreement focuses on three main objectives: preserving the fruit, creating new som kwai products and creating a KBO network to boost employment and income under HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s Sufficiency Economy philosophy,” he said.

OTOP stands for One Tambon One Product, and is an entrepreneurship stimulus scheme introduced by the Thaksin Shinawatra government (2001-2006) and modeled after Japan’s OVOP system. – See more at: https://thethaiger.com/phuket-business/Phuket-Business-OTOP-fair-showcase-local-products/20333#sthash.ONZHu5BG.dpuf
