Thailand-Korea cooperation mechanism will be revived to attract foreign investment to Thailand's Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), deputy prime minister Somkid Jatusripitak said at "Korea-Thailand 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations: Maekyung Thailand Forum" yesterday.

Currently, South Korea is Thailand's 10th largest trading country and Thailand is South Korea's 15th largest trading nation. South Korea is Thailand's 12th largest investment country which is considered as too low  given  South Korea's technology advancement and expertise, he said.
