Govt to finalise EU FTA talks this year

Thailand’s efforts to combat illegal, unreported, and unrestricted ( IUU) fishing are expected to result in the signing of a free trade agreement (FTA ) with the European Union this year.

Yesterday, the EU ambassador in Bangkok held a groundbreaking ceremony to indicate Europe Day 2024, which laid the groundwork for what would eventually be the EU. Every year on May 9th, the EU site declares that Europe Day is a moment to remember peace and harmony in Europe. The traditional” Schuman Declaration,” which French foreign minister Robert Schuman presented on May 9, 1950, was cited as the celebration of the event.

By combining the country’s coal and steel manufacturing, the charter sought to stop another war in Europe following World War II. Since then, it has helped Germans become deeper, it noted.

In his open notes, Jakkapong Sangmanee, the Minister to the Prime Minister’s Office, said that the Thai authorities aims to assume the conversations on the Union- Thailand FTA this year.

He continued,” This FTA will benefit our businesses and inter-regional supply chains as well as stimulate economic growth in both parts.”

He stated that Thailand may reaffirm its commitment to overcome IUU fishing in an effort to strike a balance between conservation and the lives of laborers. He also stated that Thailand would work with the EU to achieve sustainable economic growth.

” ]We ] would seek close engagement with the EU on this matter”, he added.

David Daly, the EU adviser, said the EU would like to work with Thailand through the FTA conversations. He added that both sides ‘ assets have increased. The EU is the next- largest buyer in Thailand, helping to give over 160, 000 work to Thais. He said both sides could do more up on green growth, weather and sea management.
