He expressed, Thailand highly values developing relationship with China, and hopes to align Thailand's 20-Year National Strategy (2017-2036) with China's Belt and Road Initiative, and deepen practical cooperation in fields such as economy, trade and investment, connectivity, technological innovation, and clean energy, advancing greater progress in China-Thailand relations and maintaining the good momentum for development and prosperity in the region.

The two sides also exchanged views on China-ASEAN relations, and regional and international issues of common concern.
