The Foreign Minister said after paying a courtesy visit to His Majesty King Sheikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa that HM was rapturous that Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has visited Bahrain, saying that the two nations have been close since Mr. Thaksin Shinawatra was the Thai Prime Minister.
The Bahrain Prime Minister will be accommodating Ms. Yingluck and showing her places by himself during her visit. According to Mr. Surapong, HM said he placed Thailand at the top of trade and investment nations for Bahrain.
With this, HM stressed that he has confidence in the Thai government and that Bahrain investors have shown interests in investments in Thailand especially in health and spa tourism.
Mr. Surapong said, besides discussions on trades, representatives from both nations have also discussed financial options for Bahrain investors, which, he said, would encourage business expansion in Thailand.
