On 19 June 2016, H.E. Ambassador Bansarn Bunnag was a special guest at the opening ceremony of the Chiba Citizen's
Day event, which was held at the Makuhari Messe Exhibition Hall in Chiba. Mr. Morita Kensaku, the Governor of Chiba,
presided over the event.
This marks the second consecutive year that this annual event has been held. The purpose of the event was to disseminate
culture and instill pride in the local people of Chiba, while also providing an opportunity to learn about other countries. Each
year, Chiba prefecture invites many embassies and Thailand was invited to participate this year.
The Royal Thai Embassy held a ceremony for people to join well-wishers in signing a congratulatory book to mark Her
Majesty Queen Sirikit`s seventh cycle or 84th birthday anniversary.
In addition, the Office of Agricultural Affairs brought Chok Anan and Kaew Savey Mangoes and Som-O (Pomelo) for
participants to taste. The Tourism Authority of Thailand also promoted tourist destinations in Thailand at the event as well.
