Thai PM looks to boost ties during two-day visit to Beijing

Thai Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha has arrived in Beijing for official visit on Dec 22 at the invitation of Premier Li Keqiang.

During his two-day visit, Thai Prime Minister held talks with Premier Li Keqiang. A joint communique is also expected to be signed, cementing bilateral cooperation in areas such as high-speed rail, agriculture and water conservancy. China and Thailand inked a memorandum of understanding on railway cooperation last week during Premier Li’s visit to Thailand.

The two countries agreed to jointly build Thailand’s first standard-gauge railway lines. With a total length of more than 800 kilometers, the project will connect northeast Thailand’s Nong Khai province with the capital Bangkok and eastern Rayong province, at an estimated cost of over $10 billion.
