The Australia Thailand Business Council and the Asia Society AustralAsia Centre have been invited to jointly host a senior-level business dinner in honour of the visit of the Prime Minister of Thailand, Her Excellency Ms. Yingluck Shinawatra.

The Prime Minister is visiting Australia as a guest of government as part of the celebrations to mark the 60th anniversary of bilateral relations between Australia and Thailand. It is with great pleasure that our two organisations join forces in holding this dinner and we anticipate this will be an excellent opportunity for our guests to hear the Prime Minister's address and meet with members of the senior delegation accompanying the Prime Minister. We would be delighted if you would join us in welcoming the Prime Minister of Thailand at this dinner.
