U.S. Companies Engage Thai Government, Encourage Pro-Business Policies

(Bangkok) – 29 leading U.S. companies visited Thailand this week in a business mission organized by the US-ASEAN Business Council. The delegation was able to learn more about the economic reform measures being planned by the government while encouraging pro-business measures that will promote Thailand as a destination for investment and trade.
The delegation was received by Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha and met with economic Ministers and Senior Officials including Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister H.E. General Tanasak Patimapragorn and Deputy Prime Minister M.R. Pridiyathorn Devakula. The mission was co-led by Pairoj Kaweeyanun, President of Chevron Thailand, and Alexander Feldman, President and CEO of the US-ASEAN Business Council.
“182 years ago the relationship between the United States and Thailand was founded on the strong bedrock of trade and business through the Treaty of Amity and Commerce.  Today, American companies and investors continue to strongly support that relationship and the people of Thailand, and are among the largest investors in Thailand”, Alexander Feldman stated.
“The 29 US companies on our delegation this year came to encourage the government to continue to move forward with reforms that will create a stronger business environment for both domestic as well as international companies”, Feldman continued.  “We particularly wanted to recognize the progress that has been made in reforming the customs regime as well as the ambitious plans for infrastructure.”
Discussions between the delegation and the government focused on how U.S. companies could continue to support ongoing economic reforms and opportunities to participate in Thailand’s ambitious broad ranging development plans, including those in the digital, financial, health and legal sectors.

Companies participating in the delegation include AIG, Brown-Forman, Caterpillar, Chevron, Cigna, Cisco, Citi, the Coca-Cola Company, Conoco-Phillips, Dow, Eli Lilly, Ford, GE, GlaxoSmithKline, Google, Guardian, MasterCard Worldwide, Merck, Mead Johnson Nutrition, Microsoft, Monsanto, Philip Morris, Procter & Gamble, Qualcomm, Seagate, Syngenta, Time Warner, UPS, and Visa.
