Hon. Arnold FOOTE
Distinguished Honorary Consuls from abroad,
Distinguished Honorary Consuls form Thailand
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is really a great pleasure for me and the Consulate of Monaco, to host all of you today, in the first unofficial regional meeting of FICAC. Although we come from different professions, we have common interest and common way of life by being Honorary Consul of a country. Therefore, please feel at home here, and I would like to ask all of you to work in a friendly and enjoyable atmosphere. That is why, at the end of our meeting in this room, we will have a dinner all together, with live music and friendly atmosphere.
Now, in the capacity of Dean of the honorary Consular Corps of Thailand, I would like to extend to you all, our warmest welcome to Thailand. The HCCT was established 11 year ago, with 55 members, out of 70 Hon. Consuls in our country. For a more detailed introduction, I just like to leave this task to Dr.Virachai Techavijit, Consul of Estonia, and our International Relations Head, to explain to you more elaborately.
In terminating my welcoming address, may we present to you one directory of the Honorary Consular Corps of Thailand, for your souvenir and your reference. We wish you a very nice stay in Bangkok, and hope you will come back again.
