Thailand fosters economic relations to UK

Queen Elizabeth II has granted Yingluck Shinawatra an audience.

Thailand’s Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra will visit the UK on November 13 and 14 following an official invitation by British Prime Minister David Cameron.

Leaders of three Thai business organisations as well as ministers from finance, commerce, industry, transportation and the prime minister’s office will be part of the  delegation that will meet their British counterparts.

The meetings are aimed at strengthening the economic ties between the UK and Thailand. Both countries look back at 400 years of relations this year, and the embassy in London is among the oldest Thai missions worldwide.

During her visit, Yingluck will also be granted an audience with Queen Elizabeth II.

Bilateral trade in goods and services between the UK and Thailand is valued at £5 billion. UK exports of goods to Thailand increased by 28 per cent in 2011 to £1.36 billion. UK exports of services to Thailand in 2011 were valued at £459 million. The UK remains Thailand’s largest export market in Europe.

Earlier in November, Yingluck has reaffirmed Thailand’s and Asia’s support for the European economic recovery by promoting mutual trade and investment to nurture Asia’s and Europe’s growth.

Yingluck, at the 9th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM)  held on November 5 and 6 in Vientiane, Laos, said the Asian region very much wants to see and support the quick rebounding of the European economy since both regions share a common future and goal of economic prosperity and their people’s welfare.

She said the Thai government will promote trade and investment with European countries in order for the two regions to grow together as “Partners for Prosperity”.
