BANGKOK, 13th October 2018 (NNT) – Thailand and Italy are working on closer cooperation in all aspects of development, Deputy Prime Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan and Italian Ambassador to Thailand Lorenzo Galanti, confirmed this week. 

Paying a courtesy call on the Thai deputy premier at Government House in Bangkok, ambassador Galanti commended Thailand on its ability to sustain economic growth amid a global economic slump, noting that Italy was ready to work with Thailand in all areas of development such as trade, investment, and defense. 

He also congratulated Thailand on its successful organization of PTT Thailand Grand Prix 2018, the first MotoGP in the kingdom, staged on October 5-7. 

In the meantime, Gen Prawit thanked Italy for understanding Thailand’s political culture and context as well as the government’s intentions to steer Thailand along a prosperous and democratic path. 

Gen Prawit extended his appreciation to Italian companies for trusting the administration’s Thailand 4.0 initiative, and their involvement in the establishment of the Eastern Economic Corridor as well as in large infrastructure projects. 

Gen Prayut also expressed Thailand’s desire to exchange knowledge and experience in national security and defense with Italy.
