Thailand at the Milano Expo 2015

Thailand at the Milano Expo 2015

Thailand is well present at Milano Expo 2015, with a participation theme called “Feeding and delight the world in a sustainable manner”. The Thai Ministry of Agriculture (thanks to its expertise) has been tasked by the Government of Thailand to construct and supervise as well as manage the planned pavilions at the Expo. Food and Agriculture will be the main topics at the Expo Milano 2015.

The Thai exhibition is divided into four thematic strands:

“Timely innovations, serving a dream” means aspiring to prevent world hunger, protecting the environment and ensuring a life geared towards sustainability for each country and individual. In this area, presented in a large elliptical shape as in a virtual cinema, there are maps and 360 degrees video projections, several interactive tools and acrobatic shows.

“Sustainability, the balance of life” is the approach taken by the King of Thailand in its ongoing effort to support Thai farmers.

“Tastes, streets and Thai flavours” offers a closer look at Thai cuisine, one that can clearly reveal the identity and spirit of its people. The idea is to get people to try an authentic and unique taste experience. Thailand is well-known for its street food, which enhances the uniqueness of flavors and variety of preparations. Food is produced in the outdoor exhibition, recreating the atmosphere of a local Temple fair, with the set up of a floating market that recalls times past, when Bangkok was known as “the Venice of the East”.

“Traditions, the roots of quality,” recalls the keywords “the Earth abundance, the cradle of food”; here visitors have the opportunity to get to know the origins of Thai food and rice cultivation.

Do not miss the attractions of the Thai Pavilion, inspired by the typical hat of the rice farmer, called Ngob. Every day this space will host several performances: boxing, puppets, giant masks and musical challenges.
