On Monday, senior representatives from South Korea and Thailand discussed ways to strengthen their partnership in electric vehicles and other future industries, according to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy of South Korea.
Deputy Trade Minister Jeong Dae-jin and Nattapol Rangsitpol, permanent secretary of Thailand’s industry ministry, held a meeting in Seoul, as part of the Thai government’s economic delegation. Jeong asked for Thailand’s support for South Korean companies looking to do business there, as Thailand is actively promoting its EV industry.
Rangsitpol showed interest in Seoul’s industry policy measures and expressed anticipation for increased collaboration between the two countries in the automotive and advanced industry sectors.
The two sides agreed to increase exchanges between their high-level government officials and to explore ways to deepen economic and industry ties, the ministry stated.
In November 2022, President Yoon Suk Yeol and Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha adopted a joint action plan to develop their relations in terms of trade, future industries, and the green economy, among other fields.
