Joint Press Statement on the 3rd United States-Thailand Energy Policy Dialogue


Building on Vice President Harris’ November 2022 announcement of Thailand’s participation in the U.S. Foundational Infrastructure for Responsible Use of Small Modular Reactor Technology (FIRST) Program, the delegations identified next steps under this new partnership and also affirmed that they are pursuing additional ways to deepen U.S.-Thailand civil nuclear cooperation to support climate and energy security goals.  The U.S. Department of Energy presented a workplan with priority topics for future cooperation under the Net Zero World Initiative.  The delegations also recognized the U.S. Trade and Development Agency’s role in facilitating reverse trade missions to the United States for Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) executives as well as a new grant supporting development of pumped storage hydro technology in Thailand.
