The association is a legally registered organization. From the beginning, Mr. Pakorn Punlee, a Thai businessman, has investigated and invested in the Republic of Kenya, East Africa, and found that there are connections between Thai and Kenyan businessmen, in the economic, social and cultural sectors with great potentials and progresses in various fields including the changing global trends. As a result, The Association of Thai-Africa Relations was founded with aims to expand cooperation, provisions of news, information about education, economy, trade, investment, tourism, labor, as well as to organize necessary activities for the benefits of both Thais and Africans.
The possible guidelines for integration and cooperation in every area to all members of the association play an important role to the determined intention to open the gateway to Africa. Therefore, it is a real challenge to greatly expand the relationship between Thailand and Africa and create it into a concrete and sustainable formation.
