During her meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinso Abe, Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra provided him with preliminary information on the Dawei deep seaport project in Myanmar, the management of water resources in Thailand and infrastructure and communication development which will cost the kingdom Bt2 trillion.
Suranand Vejjajiva, the Thai premier’s secretary general, said Japan was also interested in investment in satellite projects and high-speed trains in Thailand.
He reported that Ms Yingluck emphasised Thailand’s support of a peaceful solution to the conflict in the South China Sea.
A special meeting of regional foreign ministers, scheduled for August or September, will be a forum for talks. Thailand favours dialogue and negotiations to end the dispute, Mr Suranand said.
The Thai prime minister is visiting Japan until Saturday and is attending the 19th international conference on “The Future of Asia.”
