New Mandala readers in the UK will be keen to know that on Thursday 5 March 2009 former Thai Foreign Minister Dr. Tej Bunnag will be speaking in London. All of the details for this event, organised by Samaggi Samagom, are available here. The topic is “His Majesty the King and Development”. And, in case you were wondering, “open-minded foreigner guests” are welcome.

If any New Mandala readers do go along we are, as ever, more than happy to publish a short report on proceedings. Please get in contact with me in the usual way if you are interested in writing one up.


This event is now being discussed over at Prachatai.
