NRCT Philosophy Division, Srinakharinwirot University, and academics from other institutions, arranged a forum to brainstorm the policy, guidelines, as well as suggestions on cultural management . The forum has the objective to create understanding amongst Thai children to realize the value of Thai culture as well as being proud of being Thai.

Honorary Professor Preecha also calls on the government to consider cultural management as its important policy as the management of culture in line with the country’s economic and tourism policy will help generate income of many million baht a year.
