Message from the Ambassador
H.E. Mr. Evgeny TOMIKHIN
Dear colleagues and friends, Thailand is our oldest partner in Southeast Asia and one of Russia's biggest trading partners among ASEAN countries. During the last year's visits to Thailand of H.E. Mr. Dmitry Medvedev, Prime Minister of the Russia, and H.E. Mr. Sergey Lavrov, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia, business cooperation, of course, was high on the top of their agendas at their meetings with the Thai leadership. Bilateral trade turnover has been growing for many years. However, due to turbulences in global economy it shrunk in 2019 and keeps decreasing in 2020. In view of the above, the task that we are facing is to diversify the structure of exports and imports, and, at the same time, to work further on widening existing business links.
