Thailand seeks GI certification from Vietnam for Thai silk
Aug '13
The Intellectual Property Department of Thailand has requested Geographical Indication (GI) certification for Thai Silk from Vietnam to promote Thai handicrafts in the international market.
Pajchima Tanasanti, director-general of the Intellectual Property Department, said the agency had requested GI certification from Vietnam’s National Office of Intellectual Property, reports The Nation, Thailand.
Ms. Tanasanti said Thai silk, which is produced in north-east Thailand, has a unique texture and the GI certification would help to promote it as well as bring an added value to the farmers and producers of indigenous silk in the country.
The department has not sought for GI certification of Thai silk from the European Union, as such moves had been focused on agricultural products only, she added.
The development and promotion of raw Thai silk is one of the many initiatives taken up by the Queen of Thailand, to help the local farmers. 
Ms. Tanasanti said if Thai silk gets the GI certification, it would be the first Thai handicraft product to receive such certification from another country.
