AS the date for the entry in force of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Thailand and Chile gets closer, Chilean governmental officials and business people visited Thailand recently to hold meetings with their counterparts, and to participate in the seminar “The FTA Between Thailand and Chile, Starting a New Period of Prosperity” and the “Bites of Chile” lunch, which took place at The Landmark Bangkok.
As explained by the Chilean Trade Commissioner to Thailand, Diego Osses, “the FTA between Chile and Thailand was signed by presidents Pinera from Chile and Shinawatra from Thailand on October 2013, and was finally approved by the Chilean Congress last month.
