US-ASEAN Business Council Mourns the Passing of His Majesty Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand

The US-ASEAN Business Council offers its sincere condolences to the people of Thailand upon the death of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej after a long illness. His Majesty was 88 years old, and had served Thailand as its King since 1946. He was the longest-serving monarch in the world. Thailand is the United States’ oldest treaty ally in Asia, and under His Majesty’s reign the bilateral relationship has grown into an important political, economic, and cultural partnership. In addition to his moral leadership, King Bhumibol’s promotion of economic development led to Thailand’s current position as a regional economic powerhouse.

“His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej was a great friend to the United States,” said Alexander Feldman, President & CEO of the US-ASEAN Business Council. “Not only was the King born in the State of Massachusetts but he visited many times and met with American Presidents from Eisenhower to Obama. The King personally did much to strengthen the relationship between the peoples of Thailand and America during his long reign. We recognize the exalted position of His Majesty in Thailand, and the deep devotion felt by Thailand’s 67 million loyal subjects and countless others around the world. We send our condolences and our sincere sympathy to the Thai people during this difficult period. The King will be missed.”
