Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin will attempt to draw investment from some of the world's biggest companies during his trip to the United States for the 78th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA78) in New York next week.
Mr Srettha said he plans to discuss investment strategies with Google, Microsoft and Tesla. The discussion will focus on Thailand's competitiveness, investment opportunities and legal matters, he said.
Mr Srettha said he hopes to accelerate the nation's economic recovery.
He expects investment from major players in the business world to help improve Thailand's industries and create more career opportunities, especially for those in marginalised areas.
This year UNGA78 will be held from next Monday to Sept 24 at the United Nations Headquarters.
Mr Srettha will lead the Thai delegation to take part in activities including UN meetings; meetings with the private sector, such as the US Chamber of Commerce (USCC) and the US-Asean Business Council (USABC); appointments with key US business leaders; and engagements with Thai communities and businesses in the US.
He will also deliver a national statement during the general debate at UNGA78 and will participate in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Summit, as achieving the 17 SDGs ranks among the nation's top priorities.
The prime minister will also attend the Climate Action Summit.
His other appointments include high-level bilateral meetings and a talk with UN Secretary-General António Guterres.
Mr Srettha will be accompanied by cabinet members, including Foreign Minister Parnpree Bahiddha-Nukara, who is also the deputy PM.
Mr Parnpree spoke during a media reception at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Thursday, during which he offered a glimpse into the foreign policy direction of the Srettha government.
"I believe that under the administration of the prime minister, we will be able to bring Thailand back to having more roles on the international stage," he said.
These include not shrinking from touting Thailand as a key investment destination. He said the new foreign policy will focus on three issues, namely security, the economy and technology, to cope with current global challenges.
Mr Parnpree said that once he returns to Thailand, he will visit people in Prachin Buri province near the Cambodian border, where he will listen to their concerns about border security, trade and immigration.
