BANGKOK, 26 October 2011 – U.S. investors have reaffirmed they will continue investing in Thailand while showing confidence in the government’s problem solving strategies.
U.S. Ambassador to Thailand Kristie Kenney, together with US-ASEAN Business Council President Mr Alexander Feldman and American businessmen, met Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to assure that the United States would continue its investment in Thailand and was ready to give the Thai government support to the flood victims. Believing that the Thai government is able to solve the current flood crisis, the U.S. expressed sympathy for Thai flood victims while insisting on its role as the long-term business partner of Thailand and would absolutely not move its investment and production bases to other countries.
Moreover, the US also donated more items such as boats, life vests and water filters to the Thai Red Cross Society.
