Samak in island state on a 3-day visit

Thai Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej met his Singaporean counterpart Lee Hsien Loong and President SR Nathan during his three-day official visit to the island state which started Wednesday.

Samak and Lee discussed developments in Thailand and the region, and agreed to work more closely to further ties, especially in trade and people-to-people relations, reported Channel News Asia.

As Samak expressed his thanks on behalf of the Thai government to Singapore for hiring 47,000 Thai labourers, Singapore premier said he hoped new areas of cooperation would be developed through the Singapore-Thailand Enhanced Economic Relationship.

Samak’s visit to Singapore is the fourth leg of his tour of Southeast Asian countries to introduce himself and to strengthen relations with neighbouring countries. He visited Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar earlier this month.
