Local artisans, government offices and private groups combined to create a Chon­buri exhibition detailing and honoring the life of HM the late King Rama IX before his cremation.

Gov. Pakarathorn Thienchai opened the Oct. 25-29 exhibit with Deputy Gov. Chawalit Saeng-Uthai leading a VIP tour.

All the artwork on display was created by local artists and private companies while a host of government and private organizations contributed the historical artifacts and displays. Among them were Burapa University, the National Library of Thailand’s Chonburi branch, Banglamung Wildlife Sanctuary, Siri Charoen Wittaya Forest Project and local government offices on fisheries, livestock, conservation, marine resources and education.

The exhibits detailed local projects initiated by HM the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej on agriculture, self-sufficiency and savings cooperatives.

The exhibition aimed to provide general knowledge to students and visitors on what the late King did for Chonburi, how he supported his people and how they can carry on his legacy.
