“It’s a good opportunity for us that a global-level online entrepreneur is visiting. Online entrepreneurs in the United States and China are turning towards cooperating with ASEAN and opening branches in Singapore, Indonesia and Vietnam,” Somkid said. “Thailand is one of the countries being watched and considered for world partnerships.”

Somkid added that an executive from Amazon.com would also visit Prayuth for talks about e-commerce in mid-November.

In August, Prayuth opened his own Facebookpage in what some say is an effort to appear more affable and approachable. Under his administration, various people have been charged for running Facebook pages criticizing the government or running pollsmocking his often eccentric behaviour.
