Thailand established her diplomatic ties with India on 1 August 1947 or 75 years ago. However, both countries have historical and cultural roots dating back more than thousand years. Several cultural components support that, in fact, Thailand and India are much closer, especially in cultural and religious aspects. The people-to-people connectivity since then has complemented the stronger ties between the two countries which have evolved to become a strategic partnership at all levels. Since the beginning of this year, exchanges of visits between both sides in all key areas have resumed after the recovery of COVID-19 pandemic, in particular the 6th Foreign Office Consultations (FOC) on 21 April 2022 in New Delhi which will be followed by the 9th Thailand-India Joint Commission for Bilateral Meeting (JC) to be held on 17 August 2022 in Bangkok.
