Japan and Thailand Pave Way for Auto Industry Dialogue


Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Thai Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin have laid the groundwork for dialogue centering on the future of the automotive industry, aligning with their shared goals in managing energy and climate challenges.

The talks emphasized a framework introduced by Kishida to explore avenues ensuring Thailand remains a pivotal manufacturing hub for Japanese car manufacturers. The focal point revolved around the production and exportation of next-generation vehicles, especially electric cars.

In response, Srettha affirmed Thailandโ€™s unwavering commitment to supporting the operations of Japanese automotive firms operating within its borders.
