Thai government considers raising wheat import tariff


The Thai government is considering raising the tariff rate on feed wheat to replace the domestic corn absorption requirements that were implemented in January 2017, according to USDA GAIN report.

While the tariff for feed wheat has been zero since September 2007, the government is currently studying the impact that a 27% tariff on feed wheat imports will have on poultry and livestock production costs. While a higher tariff on feed wheat will affect Black sea feed wheat imports, it should not affect feed wheat imports from Australia due to the zero tariff rate under the Thai-Australian Free Trade Agreement.
