Greeting from the ambassador

Welcome to the home page of the Royal Danish Embassy in Bangkok.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Danish Embassy in Bangkok.

In 2018, we celebrated 160 years of diplomatic relations between Thailand and Denmark, but in fact the historical relationship between Thailand and Denmark dates back to 1621, when the first Danish ship docked at Siam. Therefore, in 2021 we can celebrate 400 years of relations between Thailand and Denmark.

In the coming years, we intend to further strengthen our cooperation and create even stronger ties between Denmark and Thailand. We do this through official relations between governments, through cooperation with organizations and companies and through activities that promote contact between the countries.

We work to strengthen trade and economic relations between the countries. There are already more than 100 Danish companies in Thailand, which have created several thousand jobs locally. However, there are good opportunities for more and more companies to introduce Danish solutions in Thailand - including areas such as food, health and climate-friendly / sustainable technology. It is my ambition to work hard to increase commercial cooperation between Thailand and Denmark for the benefit of both countries.

Due to the large number of Danes who travel to or live in Thailand and the many Thais who travel to or live in Denmark, the embassy also places great emphasis on providing good citizen service to both Danes and Thais. On the website, you can find information about the consular assistance that the embassy provides to Danish and Thai citizens.

Thus, the embassy is ready to support both citizens, companies and organizations in promoting cooperation between Denmark and Thailand.

The embassy also handles the connections between Denmark and Cambodia.

On our website and our social media you will find further information about the embassy's work, about Denmark and Thailand and about current activities.

Best regards,

Jon Thorgaard

Denmark's Ambassador to Thailand and Cambodia.
