In his address to the gathering, Ambassador Manapan said that since diplomatic ties were established 55 years ago, relations between the two countries have been growing in various fields. He pointed out that the volume of trade exchange between the two countries has steadily been rising and that the flow of tourists from Kuwait had increased to 72,000 last year. He expressed his hope that the numbers would increase further this year, and added he was happy that many Kuwaitis consider Thailand their favorite tourist destination.

He was also optimistic about Thailand’s chairmanship of ASEAN Group in 2019, and added that his country will host about 180 Asian meetings, in addition to two summits for the group.
