India-Thailand Comprehensive Economic Cooperation

Agreement (CECA) negotiations

  1. In November 2001, the Prime Minister of Thailand, Dr. Thaksin Shinawatra and the Prime Minister of India agreed to set up a Joint Working Group (JWG) to undertake feasibility study on a Free Trade Agreement between India and Thailand. The Joint Working Group observed that the present policy regimes in both the countries were conducive to more intensive bilateral economic integration and a Free Trade Agreement could prove to be a building block for other sub-regional, regional and global economic integration processes of which both countries are a part. Having observed rich potential of trade expansion, the study concluded that the proposed Free Trade Agreement between India and Thailand is feasible, desirable and mutually beneficial. Accordingly, a Joint Negotiating Group was set up to draft the Framework Agreement on India – Thailand FTA.
