AGRICULTURE & COOPERATIVES Minister Chalermchai Sri-on has pledged to promote a novel rubber industry campaign called “Sex toys Made in Thailand.”
Chalermchai today (Feb.23) posted on his Facebook page to pledge solid support for the “Sex toys Made in Thailand” campaign under which sex toys will be made of natural rubber and supplied to the world market which, he said, could probably secure as much as two billion baht in export value yearly by 2030.
The world reportedly purchased some 1.3 billion baht worth of sex toys in 2021, the agriculture & cooperatives minister said.
Chalermchai said there is nothing dirty or gross about his initiative to promote the making and export of rubber sex toys to address the sustained rubber price slumps in the domestic markets.
The raw rubber is reportedly selling for an average of 48 baht per kilo in the country.
In addition, the agriculture & cooperatives minister confirmed he will push for the setting up of the so-called Rubber Valley somewhere as a hub for rubber trading with intent to bring more sales profit to the rubber planters nationwide.
