Minister for Foreign Affairs Stephen Smith and his Thai counterpart Kasit Piromya last Friday conducted the inaugural Australia-Thailand Joint Commission on Bilateral Cooperation, to strengthen trade links between the two nations. Smith said the commission provided a chance to discuss "a range of regional and global issues, including the region's response to combating people smuggling and trafficking, the need for democratic reform in Burma and the continuing requirement for close cooperation in response to the global financial crisis". Australia already has a five-year-old free trade agreement with Thailand, which will be further underpinned by the recently signed ASEAN-Australian New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (AANZFTA).
