Deputy Prime Minister Supattanapong Punmeechaow

 

The US-Asean Business Council will lead Thailand-based American businesspersons to a meeting with Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Wednesday, said Deputy Prime Minister Supattanapong Punmeechaow.

 

The deputy PM said he has spoken to some of these businesspeople and has assured them that Thailand has the potential to draw foreign investment. Thai firms also stand ready to partner up with companies from the US.

 

Supattanapong said Thailand has developed many new industries and adjusted its development strategy, so the country does not depend solely on any one sector.

 

Government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri said some 88 American businesspersons are expected to meet the premier, adding that some will meet Prayut in person, while others via video conferencing.

 

The subjects on the agenda will be investment and international trade. They are also expected to offer ideas on how investing in Thailand can be made easy for foreigners.

Our hand is out.   We are ready to take your money, and allow the profound honor of helping us.  You are welcome. 

 

I love my Thai vendors.   No government assistance needed thank you very much.

The US business men should ask Phayut why HD motorcycles are taxed so much now that they are assembled here in Thailand.  Also, ask him what is being done with the extra 100,000 thb additional tax put on new big bikes sold starting Jan 2020.  The dealers say they have picked up this cost, but what is the gov doing with this money?

 

All this taxation with no benefits like new road laws for big bikes.

Strange, normally they send their lobbyists first to change the laws to make it easier for them. Did I miss something this time?  Remember Jeep ? Why would anyone buy a Jeep with dinosaur technology while you could have a suzuki Caribian for far more less but have the same fun.

They changed the laws and you could not buy any Suzukis anymore. Now about 20 years later go and see the prices of the Suzukis, they are higher than a Jeep Cherokee on the second hand market. A good maintained suzuki is more expensive than the original price was. Look at the price of a Wrangler? Ridiculously expensive, an airplane is cheaper.

Well, Prayut will meet these American business people. But it will be a completely useless meeting for them.

 

Prayut will look at them when they talk, he will nod, and he will try to make them believe that he listens and understands something, while he dreams about submarines, tanks and watches. He will not listen and not understand anything. He will say "yes, yes, yes, khao jai, khao jai". But by saying this, he does already what he can best, lying. Neither will he understand anything, nor agree to anything.

 

Later he will call his friend Xi, and ask him if he still backs him. Then, a big smile will return to his face.

 

Nothing will happen after his meeting with these Americans, as Pinocchio will forget the meeting after a few hours, as usual, as always.

Summed up nicely.

I hope Prayut reads news. Thanks to USA business men, Greece is bankrupt.

Sudan sold 650 hA land for peanuts, only 26000 dollar. And there are some more places 

Americans arent reliable anymore.

They should probably have a meeting regarding farang hygiene with the Health Ministry before smelling up the meeting room and offending the clean-as-a-whistle Thais who are in attendance.  Remember: Thais have got to be wary of Covid-carrying farangs, "who wear dirty clothes and don't shower." 

You know.  Like all farangs unless they are multi-millionaires.
