The Thai Government stands ready to provide support to the Ambassador in a bid to further strengthen the long-standing friendship between the two countries for mutual interests.
The US Ambassador expressed appreciation toward the Minister for the courtesy call, and affirmed that the US has always placed importance on forging close relations and cooperation with Thailand.

Both parties also came to terms on post-COVID-19 economic rehabilitation which has badly affected global investment activities. The US is pleased with Thailand being an investment base of many American firms, and that the country’s investment in the US has continued to increase, creating over 70,000 jobs to the Americans in the process.
