Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha is set to discuss the matter with his Japanese counterpart at the Asean Summit in November.
Pig meat is traded between the two countries under the 2007 Japan-Thailand Economic Partnership Agreement (JTEPA).
Japan last year became the first country cleared to export pork to Thailand.
