Bangkok, the 4th of September 2010: Under the theme, “Thainess: Sustainable Ways of Life” Thailand’s dedicated national day at this years expo was September the 5th. Attended by premier Abhisit, also in the country to pledge Thailand’s readiness to host the 2020 event, the Thai exhibition displayed traditional dance and drama performances at the 3,000m2 ‘Thailand Pavilion.”

Essential to his visit, Abhisit submitted Thailand’s readiness proposal to officials of the event, announcing possible locations for the planned 2020 World Exposition as still being discussed.
