We are exceedingly grateful to the Government of the Kingdom of Thailand for their voluntary contribution to the CICA Secretariat. We recognize it not only as a financial support, but as an expression of the political will of Thailand to strengthen CICA’s capacity for a higher degree of interaction to ensure security and development on a continental and global scale.
Thailand, being an invaluable member of the CICA process, makes a great contribution to CICA activities in the capacity of the coordinator of Confidence Building Measure (CBM) on “Sustainable Development” and co-coordinator of CBM on “Development of small and medium-sized enterprises”.
We are particularly appreciative of CICA Member States – China, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkey – who have already made financial contributions in 2021. Voluntary contributions demonstrate the effectiveness of CICA for enhancing the pan-Asian security architecture, and that its activities are of keen interest among Member States.
Availing myself of this opportunity, I would like to thank Member States for their continued support to the CICA Secretariat’s work.
