The first Thai Trade Fair has concluded. Organised by the Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP), the three-day long fair aimed to promote Thai products in Nepal. “Though the two countries have a good history of trade, the volume is very low. We aim to increase the volume of trade between the countries significantly through such events,” Tharadol Thongruang, the minister counselor (commercial) at the Royal Thai Embassy, said at the opening of the event.
According to Thongruang, Nepal and Thailand make up an average of Rs 100 million dollars in bilateral trade a year. He also said the fair would be held annually." Nepal could be a good commercial hub from the point of view of tourism, hydropower and handicraft. "
