 U.S. Ambassador to Thailand, Robert Godec also attended the event where the Prime Minister further stated, “As Thailand celebrates 190 years of US-Thai relations, we look forward to working together for advancing our common interests and prosperity for our people.”   

AMCHAM's Executive Director, Heidi Gallant, expressed her gratitude for the Prime Minister’s direct interaction with members and highlighted that "Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin's discussions with the business community covered critical issues including incentives for foreign investors, strategies for advancing high-tech industries in the Kingdom, and adapting the healthcare system to support an aging society.” 

This significant event drew the participation of over 300 AMCHAM members who are business executives from the private sector, representing industries such as banking, FMCG, energy, healthcare, technology, hospitality, manufacturing, and various business services.
