The Australian Government launched an A$110 million International Freight Assistance Mechanism, in response to the COVID-19 crisis
On 1 April, the Australian Government launched an A$110 million International Freight Assistance Mechanism, in response to the COVID-19 crisis. The initiative will secure air cargo flights for exports of high-value Australian agricultural and fisheries products destined for key markets, and bring vital medical supplies back to Australia. Initially, the support is available for flights departing from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, destined for China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates.
For Thailand, Australian Government officials are liaising with freight companies to explore the options for increasing air cargo flights from Australia. If your company has a need for air freight services from Australia to Thailand (or in the opposite direction, from Thailand to Australia), please register your interest, including details about the type(s) of products, indicative quantities and frequency of orders at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Australian exporters can also express interest in the new freight mechanism by visiting https://haveyoursay.agriculture.gov.au/international-freight-assistance

Cancellation of ANZAC Day commemorations in Kanchanaburi, Thailand
ANZAC Day occurs annually on 25 April, Australians and New Zealanders recognise this day as an occasion of national commemoration.
Unfortunately, given the global COVID-19 pandemic, a decision has been to cancel this year’s events, both the Dawn Service at Hellfire Pass and the Commemorative Service at the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery. Additionally, the pandemic has resulted in the temporary closure of the Hellfire Pass Interpretive Centre for an indefinite period.
The Australian Embassy wish to thank all stakeholders that have been supportive of the commemorative events and hope that the COVID-19 crisis will be resolved quickly and we may once again be in a position to hold the services in April 2021.
