INDIA / THAILAND

HIGH LEVEL VISITS

There has been a regular exchange of high level visits between India and Thailand reflecting the close political relationship between the two countries. H.M. King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) visited India in 1872. Following India's independence in 1947 and the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, there has been a growing number of high level visits.

The exchange further accelerated in the 1990s with the launch (in 1993) of India's 'Look East' and (in 1996) Thailand's 'Look West' policies. During the past seven years (2001-2008), there have been seven visits at the Prime Minister level, reflecting the strengthening partnership .
