BANGKOK—Ambassador Millicent Cruz Paredes and Dr. Passapong Sripicharn, who is the dean of Thailand’s Thammasat University’s Faculty of Liberal Arts, signed the donation agreement on October 20 for the implementation of the “Philippine Studies” program in the educational institution.

The program is focused on activities that enhance people-to-people relations between the Philippines and Thailand—including academic exchanges, a lecture series, research grants, enhancement of the Filipiniana collection, and other projects related to Filipino history, cultures, and society.

Paredes congratulated Thammasat University for being an instrument in strengthening Philippine-Thailand ties. She likewise lauded the higher education institution for accepting the task of implementing the said program, and providing the opportunity for Thai students and faculty to learn, experience and appreciate Philippine history, language, and culture.

The ambassador also acknowledged Senator Loren Legarda, whose congressional initiative made the conduct of the studies on the Philippines possible.

The signing ceremony was witnessed by Vice Consul Susan Phoebe R. Sabado, Cultural Attaché Evonne Avril B. Manayao, as well as university officials.
