CHIANG RAI – The Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, and Chiang Rai Province have held a press conference to announce the holding of the ‘2014 Thai Ethnic Group Festival’ on 9th August 2014 at the Circle of Culture, Chiang Rai Province.
The event held in honor of the King’s 87th, and the Queen’s 82nd birthday anniversaries, is also to encourage the ethnic groups in Thailand.
