November 1, 2021By Reuters

Thailand has ratified the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) trade deal, its commerce minister said on Monday.

Thailand’s ratification on Oct. 28 would be a boost to the country’s trade to the area, which accounted for 53% of last year’s exports, Jurin Laksanawisit said in a statement

RCEP includes China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand and the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) – Brunei, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines.
