Thailand will host the seventh round of talks on the bilateral free-trade agreement (FTA) with Pakistan from Wednesday to Friday in Bangkok, according to the Department of Trade Negotiations.

Both countries have agreed to wrap up the final talks this year. The agreement will pave way for Thailand to penetrate deeper into the South Asian region and the Middle East region via Pakistan.

Pakistan will be able to use Thailand as a gateway to export more products to the Asean market.

Last year, bilateral trade between the two countries was US$1.134 billion – up 9.8 per cent year on year.
