Top Stories : Permanent Secretary of Foreign Affairs gives the opening remarks at the launch of “Street Food Bangkok” application

On 21 September 2015, Mr. Norachit Sinhaseni, Permanent Secretary of Foreign Affairs, gave the opening remarks at the launching ceremony of “Street Food Bangkok” application at Naradhip Auditorium, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Thailand Foundation in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration created this application to promote the vibrant Thai street food scene to both Thais and foreigners, which would in turn support inbound tourism and help to stimulate the domestic economy.  The application currently encompasses more than 121 street food vendors and stalls in Bangkok and will further expand to cover restaurants in other provinces such as Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai.

The Thailand Foundation is an independent non-governmental and non-profit organization established in 2007 with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affair.  The fundamental objectives of the Foundation are to promote a better understanding of Thailand in the international community, to reinforce a positive image of Thailand, and to encourage the public and private sectors to cooperate closely with the Foundation in fulfilling the aforementioned objectives.
