Embassy of Belgium in Thailand

Belgium in Thailand

 

 

 

On behalf of the entire staff of the Embassy of Belgium in Bangkok, allow me to wish you all a very Happy New Year 2018.

For Thailand, the year 2017 was marked by the mourning of the late HM King Bhumibol Aduljadej. The Belgian royal Family also deeply felt for His loss and was represented by Her Majesty  the Queen to the Royal Cremation.

Let us now look forward to 2018 with enthusiasm. A year that will stand for a year of change with the upcoming parliamentary elections in Thailand, as well as a year of opportunity and also a special year for our two countries. It is indeed with joy that we will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the first Treaty of Amity and Trade concluded between Belgium and Siam. This jubilee will be celebrated in Belgium and Thailand on many occasions.

I am happy to reveal to you the logo above which was developed for this jubilee. I also hope I will get a chance to welcome you personally on some of the activities. Keep an eye on this site.

Again, to all Belgians in the region and to the friends of Belgium, a Happy New Year 2018!

 

Philippe Kridelka
