On 18 July 2019, Ambassador Pisanu Suvanajata paid a courtesy call on Cllr. David Cook, Lord Major of Newcastle, at the Newcastle Civic Center. Ambassador Pisanu was warmly welcomed by the Lord Mayor and both sides exchanged views on the latest development in the North Eastern part of the UK and in Thailand, especially on the economic and business opportunities offered by Thailand's Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) Programme to the UK businesses. Ambassador Pisanu also discussed about the Embassy's mobile consular service for Thai citizens living in Newcastle and in the nearby areas scheduled to be held at the Copthorne Hotel Newcastle during 20-21 July 2019. Ambassador Pisanu had expressed his thanks to the Newcastle City Council for the care extended to over 300 members of the Thai community including Thai students. Both sides agreed that promoting more businesses and furthering educational ties between the two countries will enhance greater 'visibility and awareness' of one another, which will in turn help strengthening Thailand - UK overall bilateral relations.
