As India and Thailand celebrate their 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations both countries are looking to broaden their partnership by pursuing a comprehensive bilateral free trade agreement and helping push forward the India-Asean FTA.
“We now have plans to take this engagement to an even higher level. An India-Asean and an India-Thailand FTA are under discussion, and the negotiations on both agreements are in very advanced stages,” said Latha Reddy, the Indian ambassador to Thailand.
Thailand and India, she said, were getting ever closer to each other, thanks to the economic development of India, which has helped attract investors from across the world.
