Pakistan and Thailand have renewed strong desire and commitment to consolidate and further enhance cooperation in diverse fields in line with their shared objectives of peace and development.

During the 2nd round of Pakistan-Thailand Bilateral Political Consultations (BPC) on Wednesday, both sides reviewed the entire gamut of bilateral relations from political, defence and security to economic, trade and investment ties, education, science and technology, culture, tourism and multilateral cooperation, said the Foreign Office Spokesperson in a press release.

Foreign Secretary Sohail Mahmood highlighted Pakistan’s focus on ensuring economic security leveraging its geo-economic location, development partnerships, and regional peace and security.

“There was immense scope for cooperation in trade and investment, connectivity and development given that the two countries were ‘gateways’ to their respective regions.”

It was agreed to work together for early conclusion of a mutually beneficial bilateral free trade agreement.
