Royal Thai Ambassador's Residence - July, 2013
The Royal Thai Honorary Consuls, who act as representatives of Thailand all over the UK and Ireland, gathered for a reception on a bright summer evening in July at the Residence of H.E. Mr Pasan Teparak, the Royal Thai Ambassador to the UK. The committee of the Anglo-Thai Society (ATS) and of The Association of Thai Businesses in the UK (ATBUK) were honoured to be invited to attend too, in order to strengthen the scope of coordination between all these groups dedicated to fostering mutual understanding between the two countries.
During this very pleasant evening, where new friends were made and ideas were exchanged, Mr John Edwards Iles, Royal Thai Honorary Consul in Cardiff, was presented with the King's medal, the Royal Decoration, Commander of the Most Noble Order of the Crown of Thailand, in recognition of his excellent work and dedication in promoting the Kingdom of Thailand. The evening was a reminder of how widespread the mutual interest between the UK and Thailand is in this country and what great benefits it brings in terms of fostering both personal and business relationships.
