In addition, the minister asked departments of Trade Promotion, Import and Export and Overseas Markets to propose solutions to renovate trade promotion activities to diversify export markets, reducing reliance on certain markets.

 

It also asked the Department of Trade Remedies to support enterprises in handling trade disputes, providing information and market warnings for exporters, as well as implementing trade remedies to protect domestic industries.
