Saudi Arabia is currently hosting a group of Thai business leaders participating in an official trade mission.

For the first time in more than three decades, a Thai trade mission led by Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai is visiting Riyadh, Al-‘Ula and Jeddah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from May 15-18. The purpose of the trip is to begin the process of rebuilding trade and investment ties.

Over thirty executives from leading Thai companies in agriculture, food, energy, chemical, automotive, aerospace, technology, digital, precious stones and jewellery, tourism and services, health, consumer goods and construction participate in the mission.

The trip follows a visit by Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-Cha to Saudi Arabia in January this year. This visit led to an agreement between Thailand and Saudi Arabia to fully restore diplomatic relations after the suspension of relations for more than 30 years. The Saudi-Thai Investment Forum was organized by the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Saudi Ministry of Investment. Its objective was to provide a platform for the private sectors of both countries to work towards the development of trade and investment partnerships.

Don also highlighted the Thai government’s roadmap to restore ties between the two kingdoms. (NNT)
