2017/09/22

On September 21, Ambassador Lyu Jian paid a visit to and had lunch with Mr. Anand Panyarachun, former Prime Minister of Thailand, Chairman of the Board of the Siam Commercial Bank. Mr. Vichit Suraphongchai, Executive Chairman of the Bank, and Mr. Arthid Nanthawithaya, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Bank were present.

Ambassador Lyu spoke highly of Anand's positive contribution to the development of relations between China and Thailand as one of the participants and witnesses of the establishment of China-Thailand diplomatic relations. At present, the development of China-Thailand relations is facing important opportunities. We hope to strengthen communication with Anand and people with vision in Thailand to jointly promote the healthy and stable development of China-Thailand relations.

Anand warmly welcomed Ambassador Lyu to assume his post in Thailand and recalled the establishment of diplomatic relations between Thailand and China and his contact with leaders and diplomats of the older generation of China. He said that the depth and breadth of the development of relations between Thailand and China over the past 42 years far exceeded the original imagination and has brought great benefits to the two countries and two peoples. He himself and the Siam Commercial Bank will continue to support the development of relations between Thailand and China and the work of the Chinese Embassy.

The two sides also exchanged views on international and regional issues of common concern.
