WASHINGTON: The Royal Thai Embassy's commercial affairs office has hired Global Communicators to develop and execute a three-month public awareness program emphasizing ongoing close business ties between the US and Thai business communities.
Outreach will focus on members of Congress, US government officials, the International business community, and members of the US media covering International affairs or business. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Global Communicators president and CEO Jim Harff said the current military-controlled Thai government, which overthrew the elected government of Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra in September 2006, is planning to hold elections in January and in the meantime wants to make sure Thailand maintains its "long-term public friendship" with the US.
Harff said the contract could possibly be renewed for additional three-month periods.
