Message from the Royal Thai Embassy, Nur-Sultan, on the occasion of the National Day of the Kingdom of Thailand,
5 December 2020
The 5th of December is a very special day for Thai people. It marks the National Day of the Kingdom of Thailand and is also the birthday of His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great. Due to His Majesty the late King’s numerous and tireless work to improve the wellbeing and livelihood of all Thais throughout the country during his long reign, His Majesty the late King Bhumibol is also like a father to the Thai people. That is why this date is also celebrated as Thailand’s Father Day. The United Nations General Assembly has also declared this date as the “World Soil Day” in recognition of His Majesty the late King’s devotion to improve soil conditions and agricultural productivity. Along with the advocacy of His Majesty the late King’s “Sufficiency Economy Philosophy”, which is our home-grown approach toward sustainable development, the Royal projects serve to improve the livelihoods of Thais and to help contribute to Thailand’s achievements of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has affected the lives, livelihoods and wellbeing of people worldwide, the Royal Thai Embassy has not been able to host its National Day reception this year and to welcome our fellow Thais, as well as our Kazakhstani and international friends and colleagues, to jointly commemorate this occasion. The pandemic has served as a clear reminder that all human beings, regardless of nationalities, ethnicities, race and faiths, face the same problems and challenges that can only be overcome by helping each other and working together. Amidst this challenge, Thai-Kazakhstani relations remain strong and Thailand looks forward to expanding and deepening our ties in all areas and at all levels in the hopefully soon post-pandemic world.
We wish everyone the best of health!
Royal Thai Embassy,
