BANGKOK (NNT) - The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has praised Thailand’s leading role in South-South Cooperation and expressed its readiness to collaborate as the kingdom transitions into an aged society.


UNFPA Deputy Executive Director Diene Keita recently paid a courtesy call to Chulamanee Chartsuwan, permanent secretary to the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to exchange views on further cooperation between the fund and Thailand.


She also praised the kingdom for being at the forefront of developmental cooperation through South-South and Triangular Cooperation, particularly the UNFPA and Thailand’s joint projects on Health System Development in Bhutan and Midwifery Education in Lao PDR.

The UNFPA expressed interest in exchanging knowledge and experiences on South-South Cooperation at the Global South-South Development Expo, which Thailand will co-host in September.


On this occasion, the deputy permanent secretary reiterated Thailand’s readiness to work closely with the UNFPA in implementing the UNFPA Country Program Document for Thailand 2022-2026. The aim is to promote access to family planning, eliminate gender-based violence, strengthen population development policy, and prepare Thailand for becoming an aged society in 2023.


Thailand will also be hosting this year’s International Conference on Family Planning in Pattaya in November.

The deputy permanent secretary then returned to their Government house office, picked up the phone called the other ministers in the food chain, and said "The money will be rolling in very soon, as we are the Medical Hub now for the Aging", and then called Anutin telling him that Italian-Thai better start building Senior assisted living centers as more money can be made there as well.....


Not a troll post, nor a baiting post, nor a racist comment, just a very cognitive truthful view.  Of course it is my opinion and why I have been accused of being a Whinger.

Thailand are very clever making all sorts of plans.

They are also very clever describing present situation with a LOT of curves and graphs.

But when come to implementing their plans, and later critical evaluation of the result, they have a long way to go.

But, they are on top producing paper 🙂
