The ambassador paid a courtesy call on President of the City Council of Stockholm.

          On 29 March 2023, Ambassador Arunrung Phothong Humphreys, together with embassy officials, paid a courtesy call on Mr. Olle Burell, President of the City Council of Stockholm at the Stockholm City Hall.

          The two sides discussed existing and possible future cooperation between Thailand and the City of Stockholm, including the protection of over 11,000 Thais in Stockholm who have been working hard to contribute to Swedish society.

          Other important issues discussed were, for example, the possibility of replicating the certification project for ethical Nuad Thai businesses, initiated by ThaiWISE and Malmö Municipality, with support from the Royal Thai Embassy and other agencies, to benefit traditional Thai massage salons in Stockholm.

          Ambassador Arunrung and the City Council President also discussed the possibility of further promotion of Thailand through the Thai community’s involvement in the City’s public events, as well as the possibility of extending spiritual and emotional support by Buddhist monks for Thai persons in detention centers.
