The Asean-Canada free-trade agreement is expected to boost Thailand’s economic growth by 1.97 per cent, the Department of Trade Negotiations’ deputy director-general Duangathid Nithiutai said.

He was citing a region-based feasibility study conducted by the Economic Research Institute for Asean and East Asia.

Bilateral trade between Thailand and Canada last year stood at US$2.55 billion, of which $1.6 billion accounted for Thai exports. Key products exported to Canada include canned seafood, rice, computers and computer components.
