Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn granted an audience to Dr. Chaya Chandavasu, Senior Vice President of Sustainability and Corporate Branding, GC, who presented a portion of the proceeds from the “333 Years from Versailles to Suan Luang Rama 9” event and from sales of the memorable “333-year Thai-French relationship” anniversary stamp on August 31, 2020 at Chitralada Royal Villa.
The “333 Years from Versailles to Suan Luang Rama 9” event, for which GC was a main sponsor together with the French Alumni Association, was held from December 7-8, 2019 at the Chitraladajharal Courtyard, Suan Luang Rama IX Park. The event captured the cultural journey from Versailles to Suan Luang allowing Thais in attendance to enjoy the Marché de Noël like ambience. There were several stalls selling French products in the style of a Christmas market which is popular during the festive season in cities like Paris and Strasbourg. There was also a variety of arts and cultural performances. Highlights of the event were the light and sound presentation of Kosapan's journey in a way that has never been presented before, demonstrating the historic journey of the Siamese envoy from Ayudhaya to Brest with the marvels of Versailles brought to life through the magical light and dance performances.
