Welcome to Embassy Of Nepal, Bangkok, Thailand .....
 
 
 
 
Nepal and Thailand established diplomatic relations fifty years ago. The status of diplomatic representation was raised from Ministerial level to the Ambassadorial levelin May 1969. Resident diplomatic missions at Charge d’Affaires level were opened in each other's capitals in 1969, which were subsequently upgraded to Ambassadorial level in 1980.
      Nepal and Thailand have been bound by similarity of culture and shared values. There is very good friendship, goodwill and understanding between the two countries.
          Since the establishment of diplomatic relations, in addition to other cooperation between Nepal and Thailand, Thailand has been providing a number of short-term and long-term scholarships for Nepalese students in medicine, engineering, economics, communication, agriculture and other areas under the Technical Cooperation scheme among Developing Countries through Thailand International Cooperation Agency (TICA) and other schemes.
          In order to foster economic cooperation between the two countries, a Joint Working Group at the level of Foreign Secretaries was established for the first time in 1984. The first meeting of the Joint Working Group was held in Kathmandu in 1986. The Joint Working Group was upgraded to Joint Commission in 1990 at the Foreign Secretary level. The Joint Commission has been coordinating cooperative relations between the two countries. The first meeting of the Joint Commission took place in 1990 in Thailand and the Second one in Kathmandu in 1996. A meeting of the Joint Commission is held regularly as scheduled by both countries. Joint Commission focuses on exploring the possibilities to further expand bilateral cooperation in the areas of trade, foreign investment, Tourism, civil aviation, and culture.
          Nepal and Thailand have been very cooperative and supportive to each other in the BIMSTEC Forum. As one of the founding members of BIMSTEC, Thailand was very supportive for Nepal's membership to the sub-regional organization. Nepal formally acceded to BIMSTEC during its sixth Ministerial meeting at Phuket in February 7-8, 2004.
Thai Cooperation in Lumbini:
          Thai people and Government have tremendous goodwill towards Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha. The Thai Government has built a Temple of Thai style in Lumbini. The Royal Thai Monastery is located in the vicinity of the birthplace of Lord Buddha at the Lumbini Sacred Garden. The construction has been funded by the Royal Thai Government and the devoted Thai Buddhists followers. The project was initiated to honour the celebration of commemorating the 50th Anniversary of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej's accession to the Throne.
Bilateral Trade, Tourism and Investment:
           There is warmth of feeling, and common desire to promote close economic relations between the two countries. Trade is, however, heavily in favour of Thailand. Nepal imports electrical goods, construction materials, transport and telecommunication goods form Thailand and Nepalese exports to Thailand consist of handicrafts, woolen carpets and Nepalese paper products.
          Thailand's experience basically in the field of agriculture, small and medium enterprises and Tourism can be beneficial to Nepal.
          Nepal Chambers of Commerce and Thai Chambers of Commerce signed a Memorandum of Understanding on May 20, 2004 in Bangkok for promoting bilateral trade and commerce.
          Thai investment has been realized in manufacturing, production of mineral water, hotel business, restaurant, etc.
           Thailand has become an important tourist market for Nepal in the recent years. A number of Thai people visit Nepal every year, particularly to pay pilgrimage to Lumbini. Many of them also make a tour in other parts to enjoy the scenic and natural beauty of Nepal.
           There are direct and regular flights operated by both Nepalese and Thai airlines linking capitals of Nepal and Thailand, which greatly promote trade and Tourism between the two countries.
Exchange of Visits:
          Exchange of visits at high level has played important role in developing mutual understanding between Nepal and Thailand. Contacts at various levels have provided opportunity to exchange views on a range of issues of mutual interest, both bilateral and international. Besides, they have enhanced the prospects for broader political and economic relations.
50 Years of Diplomatic Relations:
          Nepal and Thailand have been celebrating 50th anniversary of the establishment of Diplomatic Relations between the two countries with various programmes at government and non-government level throughout the year.
