Deputy PM and MFA minister attends the 69th UN General Assembly

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister General Thanasak Patimaprakorn has tightened economic ties with Japan by attending the 69th UN General Assembly (UNGA) in New York. 
 
General Thanasak met with his Japanese counterpart, Mr. Fumio Kichida, during the UN general assembly on September 25th. The Thai foreign affairs minister expressed his thanks to Japan on their understanding of Thailand's political situation. 
 
Japan acknowledges Thailand's determination in following the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO)’s roadmap, which would pave the way towards a strong foundation of democracy. The roadmap would also give importance to good political relationships, the economy, and society. Japan also understands that Thailand is playing a key role in driving the ASEAN region and supporting the regions’ stability. 
 
In terms of the economy, Mr. Fumio reported that Japan's government sector has expanded its cooperation to its private sector to invest in various projects with Thailand. Japan hopes to export its infrastructure, rapid trains, city rail transit system, satellite technology, and water management systems to Thailand. 
 
The Japanese foreign affairs minister also expressed his admiration for Thailand's efforts to interconnect the region together and narrow the gap of different developmental opportunities for a united ASEAN. Thailand supports Japan's strong role in acting as an economic link for the east-west and north-south regions. 
 
Thailand and Japan have both stressed the importance of how the two countries will together join hands and move forward in the UN talks as well as talks with other countries.
