Accompanying him are Deputy Prime Minister/Foreign Minister Gen Tanasak Patimapragorn, Science and Technology Minister Pichet Durongkaveroj and Culture Minister Vira Rojpojchanarat.
The government spokespersons’ office stated that Laos and Vietnam were the third and the fourth ASEAN countries that Gen Prayut has visited following Myanmar and Cambodia after assuming his premiership.
The visits show that Thailand attaches importance to promoting close ties with neighboring countries and cooperation in ASEAN.

The prime minister will leave for Vietnam tomorrow, where he will meet Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung, Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang, Vietnamese National Assembly President Nguyen Sinh Hung and Ta Quang Ngoc, president of the Vietnam-Thailand Friendship Association.
They will discuss cooperation on trade and investment, especially concerning farm products such as rice and natural rubber as well as roads between the two countries via Laos and Cambodia and the promotion of coastal transport.
On the occasion, the two countries will sign agreements on cultural exchange and the promotion of sister city relationship between Chachoengsao province and the Vietnamese city of Can Tho.
Gen Prayut's delegation will return to Thailand on Friday.
