The ATS Committee has been exploring co-operation with similar societies.
Through the good offices of Justin Staples, who was British Ambassador in Thailand and Finland and is a member of the ATS and the Anglo-Finnish Society (AFS), members of the ATS Committee met their equivalents from the AFS on 31 October 2012 to discuss issues of mutual interest. Although Finland and Thailand are geographically far apart, there are similarities between the two societies and we shall be exploring the scope for some joint and reciprocal events. Details of the activities of the AFS are at http://www.anglofinnishsociety.org.uk.
In 2011, Robert Gordon, President of the Britain-Burma Society (BBS), was a guest at the ATS Educational Excellence Awards reception. This year, David Fall, Chairman of the ATS, was invited to attend the annual reception of the BBS. ATS Committee member Mike Springate, who is also a member of the BBS, is exploring the scope for co-operation between the two societies.
