News : Thai National Day Auspiciously Marked in Riyadh

                        The Royal Thai Embassy in Riyadh hosted a reception on the 3rd December 2017 at Tuwaiq Palace, Diplomatic Quarter in Riyadh on the occasion of the National Day of the Kingdom of Thailand which will coincide with the celebration in Thailand on the 5th of December. The reception was attended by H.E. Mr. Sehmi bin Shuwaimi bin Fuwaiz, Special Advisor and General Supervisor of the Office of Riyadh’s Govornor, as Guest of Honour, including Saudi Foreign Affairs Ministry, Diplomatic Corps in Riyadh, executives, businessmen, media and distinguished guests viewed as “Friends of Thailand”.    

                        Besides being the Thai National Day, it had been also the Birthday Anniversary of His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej of which the Thai people deem this day as the Father’s Day of Thailand. 

                        Mr. Danai Menabodhi, Charge d’Affaire of the Royal Thai Embassy, as the host of the reception, delivered his remarks by emphasizing that His Majesty the late King took the well-being of the Thai people to heart and worked tirelessly in keeping with His Majesty’s coronation oath “to reign with righteousness for the benefits and happiness of the Thai people”.

         His Majesty the late King left his graceful legacy to the world upon His Majesty’s Philosophy of Sufficiency Economy till todays which inspires Thailand’s approach to development by espousing moderation, prudence and resilience. It teaches people to be moral, wise and self-reliant and to live modestly and in harmony with society and nature. This people-centered development is indeed consonant with the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The Kingdom of Thailand and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia share many unique similarities. Both Kingdoms have the “Great beloved Monarchy” as well as the “Kings for their people” and the “Souls of Nation”.

The Royal Thai Government attaches the utmost importance to strengthening the relations between Thailand and Saudi Arabia to move forward in the spirit of goodwill and understanding between the two countries. Thailand is readiness to work closely with Saudi Arabia for all fields of mutual benefits both bilaterally and multilaterally. Mr. Menabodhi viewed that both countries need to look forward into the future together without leaving anyone behind.
