US 'has confidence' in Thailand

Bangkok Post
Despite the huge task ahead after the flood recedes, Thailand has the capacity to bounce back, US Ambassador to Thailand Kristie Kenny said on Monday afternoon.
Mrs Kenny was commenting after delivering the fourth batch of US supplies to the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation.
The US disaster assessment team has worked with the Thai military, government agencies, and international organisations to ensure the appropriate distribution of  flood relief, said Mrs Kenny.
The US had provided items that would not be duplicated by other donors.

"Our aid is so far worth 33 million baht and we are looking beyond the relief stage to rehabilitation in areas such as  health care and education. T
"American business is also keen to help with Thai economic recovery," she said.
