Welcome Message from the Ambassador

It is an honour and special privilege to me to be accredited by His Majesty King BhumibolAdulyadej as Ambassador  Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Kingdom of Thailand to Peru. I pledge to do my utmost and devote my entire energies to further strengthen the relations between the Republic of Peru and the Kingdom of Thailand.

Arriving in Peru on 25 April 2011, since then I was fascinated by the culture, long history of the country as well as hospitality of the Peruvian people. Almost three times of the size of Thailand, Peru is a beautiful country with so much to offer. The country is distinguished by her diversity and extraordinary in many aspects. There are many interesting things left for me and Thai people to continue discovering here in Peru.

Thailand and Peru have enjoyed cordial and close relations since its establishment 45 years ago and the bilateral relations and cooperation in recent years have been strengthened and extended to various areas of mutual interest, from trade and investment, science and technology, and culture and education, in addition to the frequent exchange of visit at all levels.

The Thai-Peruvian Free Trade Agreement, the first Agreement Thailand has with the country in Latin America, which has become an important factor to triple the volume of trade between our two countries to US$ 414.86 millions, or an increase of 213.38% from 2010; will become more advantages to our bilateral trade.

Thai and Peruvian private sector, which are the key players in deepening economic relations  should be encouraged to take advantage of the opportunities under the FTA.

Thailand and Peru have also worked closely together as well as supported each other in various inter-regional and international for a such as the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), Forum of the East Asia-Latin America Cooperation (FEALAC) and the United Nations (UN) with a view to promoting global and regional peace, security and sustainable development.

I am confident that, with the support of the Peruvian and Thai Governments, I shall be able to carry out my mission successfully for mutual benefit of the two nations. During my time in Peru, I hope that links between our Governments and people will continue to grow and prosper.

Thank you for visiting this website and I encourage you to use this website as a tool to discover more about the many dimensions of the Thailand - Peru relationship.
