Ambassador Han Zhiqiang said that China and Thailand are each other's important trading partners, the two sides have overcome the impact of the epidemic, and economic and trade exchanges have shown a strong momentum of development. With the implementation of RCEP and the advancement of the development strategies of the two countries, China-Thailand mutually beneficial cooperation is facing a historic opportunity. The convening of this forum conforms to the development of the times and provides a broader platform for bilateral cooperation. It is believed that with the joint efforts of China and Thailand, the relationship between the two countries will ride the wind and waves and move forward.
