An official from the Chinese Embassy in Bangkok has congratulated Thailand for its handling of the Covid-19 outbreak and seemingly successful suppression of the virus. Speaking on behalf of the Chinese Ambassador, the diplomat says such success is due to the measures implemented by the Thai government.

Thailand has now gone more than a month without a case of community transmission and both countries say they will continue to work together and strengthen their trading ties. Thailand is currently the 12th largest trading partner of China, and both governments say they will continue to cooperate on joint trade, investment, and tourism arrangements, to help their economies recover from the Covid-19 fallout.

In a show of mutual back-patting at a meeting between the two governments, PM Prayut Chan-o-cha thanked the Chinese government for its latest donation of medical equipment, which includes over a million protective masks, 70,000 N95 masks, 150,000 Covid- 19 test kits and 70,000 items of personal protective equipment. The PM says he is grateful for China’s assistance in suppressing the virus within Thailand, adding that he sends his condolence to Chinese citizens affected by the recent severe flooding in the country.
