Presentation Title: The Trans-Pacific Partnership Impact to Asia Pacific and Thailand manufacturers

Presentation Time: 17th June, Friday at 2:00 pm

Presentation Description: The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) represents what could be the largest trade agreement ever signed bringing together 12 countries under the agreement. The TPP would cut over 18,000 tariffs on a variety of goods across a number of different industries. All together roughly 800 million consumers would fall under the agreement. The changes this agreement provokes will of course lead to both threats and opportunities for countless companies, associations and individuals. Euromonitor International will present a summary overview of some of the key industries likely to be impacted in Thailand and South East Asia with an emphasis on the drinks industry in particular. We will explore the current state of the soft drinks market in Thailand and how tariff changes in neighbouring countries could have an impact on the Thai marketplace.
