Thailand inviting Singapore to invest in infrastructure project


(24/01/13) The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has invited Singapore to invest in an infrastructure development project, which will improve domestic and Asean regional connectivity as a whole.

Speaking during his official visit to Singapore today, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul (สุรพงษ์ โตวิจักษณ์ชัยกุล) said he had a bilateral discussion with his Singaporean counterpart K Shanmugam.

The discussion centred on mutual and Asean cooperation. As both Thailand and Singapore are the most experienced in mutual trade and investment in the region, the two sides agreed to disseminate the knowledge to other Asean friends.

As Thailand has its two trillion baht investment plan to improve domestic infrastructure while improving regional connectivity at the same time, the minister has invited Singapore to take part in the investment plan.

Mr Surapong added that he has extended an invitation to Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to make an official visit to Thailand during the Asia Pacific World Water Summit which will be arranged in the northern province of Chiang Mai in May this year.

The minister today presided over the opening ceremony of the 11th meeting of Thailand-Singapore Civil Service Exchange Programme at Shangri-La Singapore, which will end tomorrow.
