            Throughout the reign of His Majesty, King Bhumibol Adulyadej had been working tirelessly for the better livelihood of the Thai people. His Majesty’s initiatives and royal projects in water management, soil improvement, local fishery, plantation, and engineering, to name a few, were keys to Thailand’s sustainable development, and have been emulated in other countries. With His Majesty as the soul of the nation, Thailand has successfully weathered through the ebb and flow of national and global events, and achieved sustainable growth and stability. To all Thais, 
His Majesty will be forever beloved and revered.
