Among the topics discussed at this meeting is Thailand’s target to push forward trade and investment value to 35 billion U.S. dollar by the year 2027, which the Foreign Minister said would require more free trade agreement talks beyond the current 82 items currently leveraging the free trade agreement between both countries.



On the Thai government’s Landbridge megaproject, Mr Parnpree said India has expressed their interest, however they would need to consider more details related to the project. This project by the Thai government could help provide India with better maritime connectivity, and further promote the Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC) between 7 countries.

The Thai foreign minister on this occasion signed on the resolution of this meeting, and witnessed the signing ceremony of a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) on the Ayurveda alternative medicine between Thailand’s Department of Thai Traditional and Alternative Medicine and the National Institute of Ayurveda in Jaipur.
