“Despite challenges like the pandemic, Thailand and India could still enjoy the impressively high record of bilateral trade at 14.9 billion USD in 2021. Such remarkable increase in our bilateral trade was attributable to DITP’s practical changes in strategies, mindsets and working methods, as guided by the well-developed policy of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Commerce of Thailand (Mr Jurin Laksanawisit). DITP is very proud to announce that “Thailand Week Trade Fair and Festival 2022 “ has been the first full- scale physical trade fair in the capital city of India to continue promoting our bilateral trade and business interactions.” Mrs Arada Fuangtong, Deputy Director-General of DITP, stated in a video message.

Meanwhile, importers and distributors can leverage trade opportunities with Thai exporters, which can lead to sustainable partnerships and profitability in the long run. The fair will take place between 26 th to 28 th August 2022 at Pacific Mall, Tagore Garden, New Delhi.
“DITP is evolving this year’s trade show as a physical platform to boost trade, business, and people-to people contact between India and Thailand. We work closely with the Indian distribution network to understand the consumer’s needs and trends.
As a result, a variety of more than 150 Thai products are showcased at Thailand Week Trade Fair and Festival 2022 ranging from food and beverages, fashion and accessories, health and beauty products, and household and decor products to meet demands of the growing Indian market.
