Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha is on a two-day state visit to Singapore starting Thursday (Jun 11), where he is scheduled to meet with President Tony Tan and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, before attending a state dinner.
General Prayut and Mr Lee are expected to discuss increased cooperation in terrorism and transnational crime as well as transport and economy.
On Friday, the Thai Prime Minister, who wrested power from an elected government under Ms Yingluck Shinawatra in a coup d'etat last May, is also slated to drop by at the National Orchid Garden at the Botanic Gardens.
An orchid hybrid will be officially named "Dendrobium Prayut Naraporn Chan-o-cha" in honour of the Prime Minister and his wife Naraporn.
During his state visit, General Prayut will also attend a business forum with Singaporean executives and meet Thai athletes participating in the 28th South East Asian (SEA) Games to show his support.
The visit is the second official trip to Singapore for the Thai Prime Minister, coming after the state funeral of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore's founding Prime Minister.
His third is expected to be on Aug 9, where he will represent Thailand's King and its people in celebrating Singapore's 50 years of independence.
