Thai Ambassador to the US meets President of USABC

Today (22 December 2022), Ambassador Tanee Sangrat welcomed Mr. Ted Osius, President of the U.S.-ASEAN Business Council (USABC) and an USABC executive and staff.

Both sides exchanged views on ways to expand trade and investment between Thailand and the U.S. as well as activities that can be implemented jointly by the Embassy and the USABC next year which marks the 190th Anniversary of U.S.-Thai Diplomatic Relations. Ambassador Tanee proposed that both sides co-host an activity to help Thai startups gain access to venture capital or other forms of finance.

Mr. Osius emphasized that the US businesses have strong confidence in Thailand’s economic potential as seen in the discussion between the Prime Minister of Thailand and the delegation of 43 US leading companies on 29 November 2022 as well as the Kingdom’s economic development plan especially in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) which has made progress continually in the past years.
