Australia has signed a new strategic partnership agreement with Thailand following talks with the Asian nation's deputy prime minister.

The agreement comes as Australia and Thailand commemorate 70 years of diplomatic relations.

The agreement signed by Foreign Minister Penny Wong on Tuesday includes cooperation on net-zero emissions, health, trade and security.

Senator Wong met with Thai Deputy Prime Minister Don Pramudwinai during a visit to Bangkok.

She said Australia would continue to work closely with Bangkok on areas like defence and regional security.

"Some 19 Australian agencies have made commitments to work with Thailand under this partnership on many areas of practical cooperation," she said.

"As middle-sized countries, what I would say is we share many of the same aspirations for the region in which we live. Ultimately, Australia seeks, and I believe Thailand also seeks, a region that is peaceful and predictable."

Thailand is hosting the APEC leaders' summit later this month, amid growing tensions in the Indo-Pacific region.
