BANGKOK, 15 March 2012 – The prime minister is determined to boost Thai economic growth rate to at least 5.5% in 2012.
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, on Wednesday, held a meeting with a Chinese delegation, with whom she discussed the strategic partnership between Thailand and China.
During the talks, PM Yingluck has insisted that Thailand is determined to boost bilateral trade by 20% and cross-border tourism by 15% within the next 5 years.
In addition, the Thai Premier has assured the Chinese delegation about the government’s readiness to offer the many incentive policies to investors from Asia’s largest economy.
The PM also convinced the visiting delegation that, with her administration’s persistence to push Thai GDP growth in 2012 to between 5.5 and 6.5% and the country’s prime geographical location, Thailand will continue to play an important role in connecting all Southeast Asian nations with the rest of Asia and the world.
The Chinese delegation, meanwhile, has expressed admiration for PM Yingluck, who they said has demonstrated strong leadership in helping Thailand overcome the worst flood crisis in decades while continuing to promote cooperation in various fields with China.
