113 views

On 6 March 2013, José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, received the visit of Yingluck Shinawatra, Thai Prime Minister, in Brussels. On this occasion, they launched negotiations for a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the European Union and Thailand. The ambition is to conclude a comprehensive agreement covering tariffs, non-tariff barriers and other trade related issues, such as services, investment, procurement, regulatory issues, competition, and sustainable development. The launch of FTA negotiations marks an important step in EU-Thai relations, already strengthened by a Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA). The first negotiating round is expected to take place before the summer break.
