Thailand is one of Australia’s most important markets in Southeast Asia. The Thailand-Australia Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) came into effect on 1 January 2005.
This Agreement ensures greater access to the Thai market for Australian products. It enhances prospects for services trade and investment. It also improves the regulatory and investment environment and promotes increased business mobility.
Before entering the Thai business market there are a number of factors to take into account. This includes culture, politics, and business etiquette.
Austrade can help Australian companies familiarise themselves with local market conditions, as well as assist in developing export opportunities through a range of in-market and Australian-based services.
