South Africa Freedom Day celebrated in Thailand
With over 500 guests and the majority of Thailand’s diplomatic corps in attendance, the Ambassador of the Republic of South Africa, HE Geoff Doidge, and Mrs. Carol Doidge hosted a magnificent reception at the Grand Ballroom of the prestigious Conrad Bangkok hotel in the heart of the city.
Members of Bangkok’s diplomatic corps widely supported the event
H.E. Ambassador Doidge paid homage to the long and cordial friendship that has developed over many years between SA and Thailand and paid tribute to the ladies and gentlemen who work tirelessly in the public and private domain who have made this possible.
