Lao PM to visit Thailand next week

BANGKOK, May 25 - Lao PDR Prime Minister Thongsing Thammavong is scheduled to pay a three-day official visit to Thailand beginning next Thursday, his first visit to the neighbouring country since he took office in Dec 2010.

Prime Minister Thongsing will visit the kingdom between May 31 and June 3 to attend the 21st World Economic Forum (WEF) on East Asia here. There will be an official bilateral discussion between the two countries' leaders.

His Majesty King Bhumibol will grant an audience to the Lao prime minister on May 31, while Crown Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn will host a lunchoen for him at Sra Pathum Palace on June 2.

Mr Thongsing will also visit the royal projects at Chitralada Palace during his stay in the Thai capital.

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and her Lao counterpart will hold official bilateral talks at Government House on June 2. They will witness the signing of an agreement on loans for infrastructure investment in the Lao PDR, according to the Thai government's official website.

Thailand will host the 2012 WEF on East Asia from May 30 to June 1. More than 450 government leaders, business sector representatives, scholars and media around the world are expected to join the event under the theme “Shaping the Region’s Future through Connectivity.”

The Thai prime minister earlier invited leaders from many countries, including nine other  members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), to attend the three-day forum.
