This week, the House of Representatives subcommittee on space economy and security invited Rémi Lambert, Minister Counsellor of the Embassy of France in Bangkok, and other related agencies to discuss promotions for France-Thailand Year of Innovation 2023 (YOI 2023).
Rémi stated during the conference that France intends to develop a strategic partnership in transportation and space technologies with Thailand by 2024.
