In 2021, the Royal Thai Embassy in Stockholm hosted the first online "Thailand - Sweden Sustainable Development Forum 2021" with the participation of many Thai and Swedish organizations as partners. The objective of this Forum is to be a platform for knowledge and best practices sharing and to provide opportunities for state agencies, civil society organizations, academic institutions, and private sectors to mutually consider the possibility to concretize cooperation on the subjects related to sustainable development, which in turn, would contribute to achieving the SDGs through joint efforts among Swedish and Thai organizations.
The Embassy of Sweden together with Business Sweden and Thai–Swedish Chamber of Commerce will organize the online “Sweden – Thailand Sustainable Development Forum 2022” on 8 June 2022 at 09.00 - 12.30 Swedish local time and 14.00–17.30 Thai local time with the Royal Thai Embassy, Stockholm as a co-host.
All sessions will be conducted in English. We will provide interpretation into Thai language during the opening and closing session and for the break-out session “Decent Work is Good for Business”.
The Forum will be recorded and posted on Youtube and can be watched afterwards if you are interested in more than one theme.
