Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has welcomed the British Ambassador, who paid him a visit at Government House to discuss bilateral cooperation.
Mr Mark Andrew Geoffrey Kent, British Ambassador to the Kingdom of Thailand, today paid a courtesy call on Gen Prayut and was briefed by the Thai premier on his government’s effort to restore political stability in Thailand. The Prime Minister reported gradual improvement in the overall situation and said the reform roadmap had reached its second phase, where a strong foundation would be laid for democracy.
Citing the Thai economy as going strong and expanding steadily, Gen Prayut invited British entrepreneurs to invest in Thailand, especially in such areas as alternative energy, green energy and agricultural development. He affirmed support would be provided for them and investment regulations would be improved to ensure the highest mutual benefits.
On this occasion, the Prime Minister gave his assurance to the Ambassador that Thailand was still a safe destination for travelers. He also thanked the United Kingdom for sending volunteers to teach English in Thailand as the country was on track to improve language skills before becoming part of the ASEAN Community.
Mr Kent, meanwhile, disclosed that British investors were already keen to invest more in Thailand. He said he appreciated the Thai government’s attention to tourist safety, assuring that more British travelers would be coming to the Kingdom.
