At a working session with the provincial authorities, a TICA representative introduced a sustainable community development project based on “sufficient economy philosophy” (SEP) by late King Rama IX.

Initiated in 1927, SEP aims to improve the lives of the poor across Thailand, which has been successfully applied in over 20 countries worldwide, including Laos, Cambodia, East Timor, Sri Lanka, among others.

SEP is due to be launched in Yen Lac commune in Thai Nguyen province’s Phu Luong district, as it is home to many craft villages.

Earlier, the delegation paid courtesy calls on provincial leaders and was briefed about the province’s socio-economic development as well as its development potential in the coming time.

The ambassador pledged to do his best to tighten both Vietnam-Thailand relations and Thailand–Thai Nguyen ties in particular.

On January 9, the delegation will take a fact-finding trip to Yen Lac commune before launching the project.
