BANGKOK (NNT) - The government aims to sign mini-Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with other provinces in China following strengthened partnerships from the first FTA with Hainan province in late August.

 

Commerce Minister Jurin Laksanawisit said the ministry plans to organize online business matching activities between Thailand and Hainan at the end of 2021 and a trade fair, exhibiting world-class Thai brands, at the Hainan Expo for the second year in a row, focusing on promoting health and wellness products and services.

 

He said Thai officials are eager to sign similar partnerships to increase bilateral trade with more provinces in China, such as Gansu in the north, which is majority Muslim, making it a good match for Thai halal products.

 

According to the Commerce Ministry, the Chinese government recently declared Hainan a free trade port, linking it with countries along the “Belt and Road” initiative, to encourage trade activity there. Hainan is the smallest province in southern China and a strategic point connecting the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area to Southeast Asia along the "Maritime Silk Road."

Yep. Look at the idiots in the NT of Australia who gave away the Port of Darwin for 99 years for a lousy 500 mil dollars.

The Chinese getting revenge for the British lease on Hong Kong.

Why not just let China annex Thailand?  After all, that seems to be the game plan.

Actually, if one might carefully look into the history of Chinese-SE Asian relations. 

Hint: Ming Dynasty and loosely knitted tributary/vassal states.

 

And for all of the deeply set Eurocentric types conditioned to be everything anti-China [for centuries]. Beware of the Yellow Peril boogieman. 😏😏
