The main purpose of the visit was to further develop Thai-Estonian cooperation in international education and academic exchange. Each year increasing numbers of Estonian students come to Thailand in order to further their studies. This ongoing cooperation has instilled the students with confidence, not only because of the quality of the education they receive, but also because they are equipped with skills in ethics and leadership. Each student is guided in such as way as to be able to put theoretical learning into practice.
