MFP seeks opportunity to rehabilitate Thailand on global stage

The Asia-Pacific Regional Agenda Head of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Joo Ok Lee met a Move Forward Party (MFP) committee to discuss MFP policies and possible cooperation.

On 21 May 2023, the MFP media team revealed that Pita Limjaroenrat, the MFP’s PM candidate, and policy campaign manager Prit Wacharasin met WEF officials in order to seek possible cooperation between Thailand and the WEF, an international organization which holds an annual global conference to address the global economy, including hosting a WEF meeting in the future.

The last time Thailand hosted a WEF meeting was in 2012.

Pita said the party has policies to remove the military’s influence from Thai politics, break up monopolies, and decentralise power. 

According to the MFP’s foreign policies, Pita stated that an MFP-led government will revive Thailand’s leading role in ASEAN to lessen the violence in Myanmar. 

His government will rebalance Thailand’s position in international politics, and Thailand will not align too closely with any one superpower.

Pita stated that the government will also recalibrate Thailand’s leadership on the international stage by enhancing ASEAN’s bargaining power.
