Yingluck Shinawatra met with the European Council to discuss Thailand’s flood management measures and free trade agreement between Thailand and Europe.


After attending the 67th United Nations General Assembly on the topic of “Bringing about adjustment or settlement of international dispute or situations by peaceful means”, Ms Yingluck Shinawatra arranged a meeting with the President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy, during which the European Council President asked the Thai Premier about Thailand’s flood disaster management and the Thai PM assured Mr. Herman that Thailand had a number of short- and long-term measures to handle future floods.

Additionally, Ms. Yingluck also negotiated with Mr. Herman on free trade agreement or FTA between Thailand and Europe. The push is meant to benefit the Thai agricultural sector.

The Prime Minister also said that if Thailand was to be excluded from the “Generalized System of Preferences” or GSP list, the FTA framework would help solve that problem and drive the Thai export sector.
