(February 16, 2021) The time is right for Thailand to join the CPTPP

No more dillydallying. Thailand should join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). Otherwise, the "unpreparedness syndrome" will continue to reign in the "hearts and minds" of concerned policy and opinion-makers, further downgrading the country's potential and ability to join free trade arrangements (FTAs) in the future. The economic slowdown wrought by Covid-19 further demands the promotion of trade and investment as well as the country's competitiveness.

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai, chairman of the International Economic Policy Committee, said that the committee will need another three months to further study the outcomes prepared by the House of Representatives, which recently submitted a final report, before a decision is made. The next round of the CPTPP commission's meeting is scheduled for August.
