It was the third meeting between the two in the last 18 months. “Prime Minister Shinawatra is totally focused and has the right combination of government and economic policies to ensure that Thailand achieves its rightful potential and attracts foreign capital,” said Fuld. “Reflecting Prime Minister Shinawatra’s strong focus, Lehman Brothers is committing up to an additional $250 million in Thailand.
