On behalf of the Royal Thai Consulate-General in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the Macau Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, together with all the Thai people and communities living in Hong Kong and Macao, we join the people of the Kingdom of Thailand to present our deep loyalty and devotion to His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej on His 85th Birthday on Wednesday December 5th, 2012.
Throughout 66 years on the throne which is the longest reigning monarch in the world, His Majesty King Bhumibol has dedicated his wisdom and working lifetime to the betterment of the livelihood of the Thai people. He has visited every corner of Thailand to meet his people in order to gain firsthand understanding of their problems and initiate various types of development projects ranging from education, healthcare to irrigation and agricultural projects aimed at uplifting the poor and generating income for all. His theory of Sufficiency Economy provides the Thais as a guiding light or wisdom to survive and lead their lives in the Globalization world. His Majesty’s dedication to Thailand and the Thai people wins the hearts of all Thais and we respect him as “Father of the Land.”
As Consul-General of Thailand to Hong Kong and Macau, I am very delighted to learn that the strong and flourishing people-to-people contacts between Thailand and Hong Kong as well as Thailand and Macau have strengthened our close and cordial relations during the past years and played an integral and important role in the Thailand-China strategic partnership. As the Country Coordinator for ASEAN-China Dialogue Relations from 2012 to 2015, Thailand will work tirelessly to strengthening and deepening the cooperation between ASEAN and China to achieve the long-term goal of building an East Asian community for peace and prosperity in our region.
As a tribute to His Majesty's boundless contributions for the prosperity of the nation, I would like to join the peoples of Thailand, Hong Kong and Macau in wishing His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej a good health and happiness on his 85th Birthday Anniversary.
