So, without further ado, let’s have a look at the top seven products that Thailand imports from India.
Machinery: India produces certain types of heavy weight machinery which get exported to Thailand along with several other countries in South Asia. Also, a lot of Thai businessmen imports lose parts or accessories from the Indian markets and use them to develop full-sized machines in their own factories.
