UK Minister for International Trade to visit Thailand

Back to News

Mark Garnier, newly appointed Minister at the Department for International Trade, will visit Thailand from 27 to 29 July.

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 2 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 Ministerís 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.

Mark Garnier will also meet representatives from Thai and UK companies, to follow up the launch of the Thai-UK Business Leadership Council in London earlier this month.
