The campaign highlights ‘Thai Smiles’ in the meaning of sending support and care from Thai people to people in the world during this difficult time of the pandemic.
The project is set to enhance Thailand’s image and help boost the country’s economic well-being through travelling activities and tourism, with long-term expectations. Presiding over the opening ceremony is General Prayut Chan-o-cha, Thailand’s Prime Minister with General Prawit Wongsuwan, Deputy Prime Minister, Anutin Charnvirakul, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Health, Saksayam Chidchob, Minister of Transport, Distat Hotrakitya, Secretary-General to the Prime Minister, Chote Trachu, Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Tourism and Sports, and Dr. Yuthasak Supasorn, Governor of Tourism Authority of Thailand joining the event at Aksra Theatre, King Power Complex, Rangnam Road.
Mr. Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, CEO of King Power Group, and Leicester City FC Chairman says, “The THAILAND SMILES WITH YOU campaign is one of the projects King Power Group proposed in the letter replying to the Prime Minister which was earlier sent to private sectors asking for support and collaboration to lessen the impact of hardship faced by the Thai people and restore the country’s economic welfare.”
“So far, the government has announced several policies and projects to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic which has brought the world’s economy to a halt and has gravely affected the people’s mental health, socialising, and ways of life. As a Thai and an entrepreneur whose ethics is firmly rooted in social responsibility, we are proud to cooperate with the government in mitigating the adversity and supporting projects that will both directly and indirectly benefit our country’s economic and social well-being, hoping that it will lead us through this crisis safe and sound.”
“Thailand remains one of the world’s top destinations for travellers from around the world having the potential in every aspect, especially the remarkable Thainess that is inscribed in the famous ‘Thai smile.’ ‘Smile’ is the unique trait of the Thai people. It is also a universal symbol of care and moral support that can be understood by every person regardless of race, language, gender and age. It is in this belief that inspired us to name the campaign THAILAND SMILES WITH YOU.”
This collaborated campaign between King Power Group, the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, and the Tourism Authority of Thailand aims at sending care and moral support from the Thai people to the world amidst this pandemic crisis through King Power’s Leicester City FC’s communication channels and platforms, one UK’s premier league teams of which the popularity is proven by its followers in 212 countries, comprising 643 households, and 4.7 billion viewers. This collaboration marks an important occasion between Thailand, the Thai people and Leicester City FC as the world will witness the phrase ‘THAILAND‘ SMILES WITH YOU on the LCFC footballers’ jerseys for the first time and throughout the 2020-2021 season!
