During his visit he will meet Dr Suwit Maesincee, Deputy Minister for Commerce, to discuss a range of bilateral trade and investment between the 2 countries.
He will also meet Deputy Minister for Education, Dr Teerakiat Jareonsettasin, to discuss education co-operation. In April the UK and Thailand signed a Memorandum of Understanding ( MOU) on an education partnership between the two countries.
The British Ambassador, Brian Davidson, said:
I am delighted to welcome Mark Garnier to Thailand so soon after his appointment as a Trade Minister. He knows Thailand well from his previous role as the Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy, and he has a real enthusiasm for the opportunities in this market.
The UK remains active, outward facing and engaged in Thailand and across the region, and commercial ties are a central pillar of that partnership.
