Bring back investors

Foreign Minister Noppadon Pattama said at Post Forum 2008 that he is telling foreign investors that democracy is restored in Thailand and the country wants to welcome them back.

Mr Noppadon also called on the public to judge the achievements of the ministry, not its policy.

He then touched on the policy of the Foreign Ministry, and explained that it is written based on the wants and needs of people and the country.

He also said he is expected to travel a lot to create a better understanding about Thailand among foreigners after the military coup.

Mr Noppadon used a relation between Thailand and Singapore as an example. He said the relation with the city state has been improved, and Singapore investors will travel to Thailand to discuss with the government further investment in April.

He also mentioned his plan to push Thai embassies to become business centres.
