Fiji will support Thailand’s bid for non-permanent membership of the United Nations Security Council.

Thailand’s Prime Minister, General Prayut Chan-o-cha, met Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama at Thailand’s Government House on Monday and asked for support from Fiji.

Mr Bainimarama promised his support.

General Prayut said that Thailand wanted to exchange votes with Fiji in the UN for its bid to be a non-permanent member of the UNSC.

In return, he said Thailand would support Fiji’s bid to be member of the UN Human Rights Council and chair of the General Assembly.

Meanwhile,  Mr Bainimarama and wife Mary visited  the Mitr Phol Sugar Factory in Danchang District, Suphanburi Province.

According to Wikipedia, Mitr Phol Sugar Corp is a privately owned group of companies, mainly owned by the Vongkusolkit family.

In addition to Thailand and China, Mitr Phol has operations and investments in Lao PDR, Cambodia and most recently Australia. Its key business units include Sugar, Ethanol, Biomass Energy, Fiberboards, and Logistics.

Within Thailand, Mitr Phol has six sugar mills, with a total production capacity of 130,500 tons of sugar cane daily. All mills have refineries attached and produce white sugar.
