The “International Conference for the Celebrations on the Auspicious Occasion of His Majesty the King’s 7th Cycle Birthday Anniversary 5th December 2011” will take place at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Bangkok between 18 and 20 June 2012.
The conference, earlier scheduled for 16-18 November 2011, is organized by the Royal Institute of Thailand. It is entitled “The Role of the Learned Societies in Improving the Quality of Life in the Context of Globalization.”
The three-day event will focus on the theme of Sufficiency Economy, a philosophy initiated by His Majesty the King as an innovative approach to development designed for practical application over a wide range of problems and situations. Twenty-five years prior to Thailand’s experiencing a serious economic downturn in 1997, His Majesty the King had urged Thai people to practice what the King later described as a “sufficiency economy.” Sufficiency Economy is based on three major principles: moderation, rationality, and self-immunization from impacts arising from internal and external changes.
About 200 Thai and international academics, researchers, and specialists in various fields are expected to gather at this conference.
