Thailand Free Trade Agreement

In October 2003, President Bush announced his intent to enter into FTA negotiations with Thailand, reaffirming his commitment under the Enterprise for ASEAN Initiative (EAI) to strengthen trade ties with countries in the ASEAN region that are actively pursuing economic reforms. During two rounds of FTA negotiations between the United States and Thailand in 2004 and four rounds in 2005, good progress was made on the text of all chapters of the FTA, although significant work continues.

An agreement with Thailand, which is currently the United States’ 20th largest trading partner, would significantly increase trade in goods and services, create more commercial opportunities for U.S. exporters, particularly agricultural product exporters, and reduce or eliminate barriers in many sectors. In addition, a United States-Thailand FTA would enhance investment flows by ensuring a stable and predictable environment for investors, and improve the protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights. An FTA also would strengthen longstanding economic and security ties between our countries.
