Liu Jingshi, Counsellor of the Chinese Embassy in Thailand, Yin Mengsi Paisantawatt, Chanthaburi Prefecture, Thanapun Jigan, Mayor of Chanthaburi, Luo Zongzheng, Chairman of the Thai Chinese Teachers Association, Luo Tieying, Executive Chairman of the Thai Chinese Teachers Association, Zhan Juncheng, Chairman of the Council of Public East British Schools, and other guests attended the event.
Located in the heart of Chanthaburi, the Thai Chinese Museum took two years to build, and during the preparatory period, it received strong support from enthusiasts from all walks of life in Chanthaburi. The museum aims to disseminate and carry forward Chinese traditional culture and promote cultural exchanges between China and Thailand.
Yin Monsi Paisantawat of Chanthaburi said in his speech that there have always been close economic, political and cultural ties between China and Thailand, especially in Chanthaburi, where many folk customs and beliefs have been influenced by Chinese culture. There are many children in Chanthaburi who learn Chinese and Chinese talents from an early age, such as dance, martial arts, musical instruments, calligraphy and so on. By learning Chinese culture, children can better deepen the friendship between Thailand and China, so as to truly realize "China and Thailand as a family". The establishment of the Thai Chinese Museum, in addition to promoting Chinese language teaching and spreading Chinese culture, can also increase the multi-party cooperation between Chanthaburi and China, and the Thai Chinese Museum will be a bridge to strengthen the exchange of Thai and Chinese.
After 77 glorious years, the public Oriental British School is the oldest and largest Chinese school in Chanthaburi. It has been awarded the titles of "Chinese Education Model School" and "Standardized Model School" by the Chinese and Thai government departments.
At the event, Lo Zong, Chairman of the Thai Chinese Teachers Association, donated 200,000 baht to the public East Anglo School to support the development of the school. (End)
