Mr. Amerish “Ami” Bera, member of the U.S. House of Representatives, and chair of the Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific, Central Asia, and Nonproliferation, led members of visiting U.S. House of Representatives in a courtesy call to Thailand’s Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha, upon their official visit to Thailand yesterday (Nov 8).

The group of U.S. officials is the first to visit Thailand since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, reflecting a longstanding relationship shared by both countries.

Both sides expressed their willingness to extend bilateral cooperation and acknowledged similar approaches shared by both countries on global topics, such as climate change, human security, human trafficking suppression, and COVID-19 responses in the aspects of public health and economic recovery.
