Described as “Thailand’s salesman,” Srettha’s primary goal is to attract foreign investment. He stressed that his international engagements are crucial for fostering trade and investment opportunities.

He was going around the world with the begging cap outstretched.

Ignorant people in every country criticize their leaders for travelling overseas too much. Yet we live in a one-world conglomeration where everything that's important has international causes & effects - economy & investments, technology & comms, security & defence, population movements, climate change and on & on.


If you want your country to be part of the decisions that will affect your country, then you need to accept that your country must be represented at the appropriate levels at the many many international meetings.

This neutrality ensures production bases and supply chains remain stable even if geopolitical tensions arise.

Unlikely. It creates suspicion at best and distrust at worse.

When nations must make international commitments that align with their societal moral and ethical compass, Thailand cannot be aligned without consequences.

Cases in point:

  • Thailand's comfort with Russia engaged in war crimes against Ukraine
  • Thailand's support of China's discrimination against Muslims, placing whole families into detention centers and internment camps.

and prompting him to pledge a two-month travel hiatus in March.

So nine more months of globe-trotting. Start again in May 2025.

Whatever happened to ZOOM?

Politicians are touchy-feely types. Zoom etc is used all the time but nothing beats pressing the flesh with friends & enemies ... if you want a deal.
