BANGKOK (The Nation/ANN): The US-Asean Business Council will lead Thailand-based American business commumity to a meeting with Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha on Wednesday (Nov 25), said Deputy Prime Minister Supattanapong Punmeechaow.

The deputy PM said he has spoken to some of these business people and has assured them that Thailand has the potential to draw foreign investment.

Thai firms also stand ready to partner up with companies from the US.

Supattanapong said Thailand has developed many new industries and adjusted its development strategy, so the country does not depend solely on any one sector.

Government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri said some 88 American businesspersons are expected to meet the premier, adding that some will meet Prayut in person, while others via video conferencing.

The subjects on the agenda will be investment and international trade. They are also expected to offer ideas on how investing in Thailand can be made easy for foreigners. - The Nation/Asia News Network
