How to support development of the local Thai arts and crafts, is one of the missions of the Gallery Manager Kesada Srisawasdi from Thailand, who came with her colleagues and an Embassy representative to visit us the other day. How to match the craftsmen and skills with the industry and industrial production, and how to use design as a tool of development in this process. The purpose of the visit was to see how we have worked with these issues in our history and in present days, if there is any ways of continued cooperation. We have been happy to meet many Thai representatives of craft and design throughout the years, and we have also shown Swedish Design Exhibitions at the TCDC in Bangkok for example. Every week we receive interesting international visits at our offices, a good way to extend our international relations and collaborations.
