The Royal Thai Embassy in Nairobi has the pleasure to welcome all to the online celebration on the occasion of the Thai National Day, the Birthday Anniversary of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great, and Father's Day.

The Thai national day was initially celebrated on the 24th of June to commemorate the change from absolute monarchy to constitutional monarchy in 1932.  Later on, in 1980, the Cabinet shifted the national day to the 5th of December, which marks the Birthday Anniversary of the His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej The Great. It also has been designated as Father’s Day.

During his reign, His Majesty the late King worked tirelessly for the well-being of the Thai people. His legacy of Sufficiency Economy Philosophy has been and still constitutes the guiding light for our national development programs as a viable approach to implementing the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. 

His Majesty’s great contribution to soil preservation is beneficial not only Thailand but also the world at large. The global community, thus also, celebrates the 5th December as the “World Soil Day,” as declared by the 68th United Nations General Assembly. This is why His Majesty has also come to be internationally known as the “Development King”.
