On 15 September 2022, the Royal Thai Embassy in Phnom Penh engaged in a Youth Town Hall organized by The Young SEAkers Cambodia in partnership with Singapore Cambodia International Academy (SCIA).


A total of 35 enthusiastic students from different schools and universities received a warm welcome from the Thai Embassy’s Team and had a chance to visit the Embassy’s premises, exchange with the Ambassador of Thailand to Cambodia and enjoy a Thai delicacy.


H.E. Ambassador Panyarak Poolthup had a candid and inspiring exchange on a variety of topics ranging from Thailand-Cambodia diplomatic relations, trade between the two countries, Cambodian migrant workers in Thailand, Development Diplomacy including Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn’s Education Projects and the Royal Scholarships, shared cultural and religious values, and personal experience working in foreign service. H.E. Ambassador advised the young Thais and Cambodians to stay connected by getting to know each other with an open mind and focusing on the areas upon which both can build, such as on the shared cultures and values of both countries.


This flagship activity of The Young SEAkers Cambodia will continue with Town Halls with other ASEAN Ambassadors in the coming weeks.
