The Cabinet has decided to join talks on the US’s newly proposed multilateral trade agreement, known as the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework for Prosperity (IPEF).

 

According to the Thai government’s website, the decision will allow Thailand to join other countries which have expressed interest in negotiating rules and procedures for the IPEF. Some ASEAN members, such as Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia, are keen to become IPEF founding members.

Hahaha... Thailand and other South east Asian countries joined RCEP which provides Papa Xi total control over markets here... A too little too late for US to offer something for trade here.

At least they’re trying something.  SE Asia in danger of being swallowed up by Uncle Xi.

Just don't expect Sleepy Joe to answer any questions on it after reading the back-staff script.

Why not talk ? It'll include free US paid junkets for sure. Maybe even a brown envelope or two. Talk isn't just cheap, sometimes it can pay; last trip to USA for talks got 150 million US dollars.
