From north to south and east to west, there is virtually no place in the Kingdom of Thailand where His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej has not set his foot. His Majesty the King along with Her Majesty Queen Sirikit and the members of the Royal Family has tirelessly dedicated time and effort in visiting his subjects across the country. His Majesty treats all the problems as though they were his own, and ceaselessly works to solve them and plans long-term solutions for a sustainable way of life. To help improve the living conditions of the people, His Majesty utilises his all-round expertise in developing strategies and methods according to the social and environmental factors of each area. The projects that His Majesty initiated for his people cover all grounds of work, including health and medicine, education, society, irrigation, land development, agriculture, the environment, and transportation. His Majesty’s approaches in seeking practical solutions faced by his people involve providing people with knowledge and skills essential in supporting the family and becoming self-sufficient, as well as restoring and conserving natural resources for the sustainable future.
