NCPO gives go-ahead for Thailand signing up to WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement

The National Council for Peace and Order has given the green light for Thailand to ink the World Trade Organisation's Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA), in order to make it easier for companies to achieve sustainable business growth in the international arena.

The move shows that the country is prompt and active in terms of participating in international trade rules and the multilateral trading system, despite currently being under military rule.

Chutima Bunyapraphasara, permanent secretary to the Commerce Ministry, Tuesday said the NCPO had agreed that the Kingdom needed to comply with the FTA, as it would help facilitate trading and investment growth.
