The main dialogue took place between Mr. JuDr. Svoboda and Thai Ambassador HE Mr. Narong Sasitorn. They were having a discussion about diplomatic relations between the Czech Republic and the Kingdom of Thailand. The participants had the opportunity to get involved in the discussions. The whole debate was in English.
Firstly, HE Mr. Narong Sasitorn talked about his professional beginnings in Thailand. He said, what it entails to be a diplomat and compared the relations between Asia and Europe, and more specifically the relations between Thailand and the Czech Republic. During the discussions participants learnt a lot of interesting information about the politics and economics of Thailand.
