The Indonesian Embassy in Bangkok held a workshop along with the Indonesian people in Thailand, which was attended by approximately 80 Indonesian citizens on Sunday, ( 4/10). This activity is aimed at not only enhancing the relationship between the Indonesian Embassy in Bangkok and the Indonesian people in Thailand, but also discussing relevant issues in a bid to foster Indonesian communities in Thailand. This is part of the sustainable efforts of the Indonesian Representative to empower the Indonesian Diaspora Network and the Indonesian Student Association in Thailand, to become national ambassadors, and to help further promote Indonesia in Thailand. This workshop was an opening of a series of activities carried out by the Indonesian Diaspora Network and the Indonesian Student Association in the fields of sports and cultural arts. The Chancellor for Ad Interim of the Indonesian Embassy in Bangkok, Dicky Komar, at the opening of the event said that this activity was filled with discussions on issues regarding consular affairs, immigration, promotion of culture and education. The Indonesian people, both members of the Diaspora and the Association, seemed to enthusiastically participate in this activity which was the first direct interaction activity during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Thailand's situation has improved and the relaxation of mass gathering activities allows Indonesians to meet each other and have direct dialogue. Dicky Komar further said, the Indonesian Embassy in Bangkok always supports every positive activity carried out by the Indonesian people in Thailand; one of which is through sports and cultural arts. Currently, the sports activities carried out by the Diaspora and the Association are soccer and volleyball training, and cultural arts is gamelan training. It is hoped that the sports and cultural arts training program to be carried out will be more diverse and the Diaspora and the Association can help the Indonesian Embassy in promoting Indonesian cultural arts to Thai community and the international community.
