The United States and Thailand have enjoyed cordial trade relations for over two centuries, with the U.S. always being one of the top foreign traders and investors in Thailand. In 2020, U.S.-Thailand bilateral trade totaled almost 49 billion USD, a 4.5% increase, despite disruptions to all economic activities brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. As the United States and Thailand prepare for a post-COVID-19 economic reality, this webinar will identify areas where U.S. and Thai economic policies can mutually complement each other.
The New Opportunities for the United States-Kingdom of Thailand Alliance in the Indo-Pacific webinar series is a collaboration between the Royal Thai Embassy, Washington, D.C., the East-West Center in Washington, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand, and the International Studies Center to further promote engagement and better understanding between the United States and Thailand’s respective government officials, parliamentarians, private sectors, academic and think tank analysts, and the general public.
This seminar will be on-the-record and recorded on both Zoom and YouTube.
