Ambassador Niyom was appointed Ambassador of Thailand to Norway during the year 2012-2015. He was profoundly respected and much loved by the Thai community in Norway and played an important role in fostering friendly bilateral relations between Thailand and Norway, especially in establishing good networking connection between Thailand and Norway.
The Thai Embassy in Oslo very much appreciate the visit to Oslo made by Ambassador Theerayun Niyom. We believe that the visit will further strengthen the cordial relations between Thailand and Norway.
