FD TALK By Mr.Krisana Lalai President of Friendly Design for All Foundation
We have been moving forward and driving Thailand to two main purposes.
First, Tourism City for All.
Second, the hub of Friendly Design in Southeast Asia.
FD EXPO 2019 will be the fourth expo this year. We will focus on expanding a Friendly Design network on a global scale.
To reach our goals, we will support Friendly Design products, technologies, and innovations and support semina and activities and other narratives about Friendly Design, in order to enhance the quality of life of the four main groups –
1. The Elderly
2. People with disabilities
3. Rehabilitation patients
4. People with wheelchairs, which also include families with babies, pregnant women, and tourists with luggage.
The main point of our FD EXPO is to reach these three objectives.
1. Preparing for the aging society
2. Supporting the of equality of rights for people with disabilities
We wish that FD EXPO becomes not only the main stage of knowledge exchange on Friendly Design, but also a special event which provides networking opportunities and jobs opportunity for people with disabilities and people with wheelchairs from all around the world. We also plan to hold “World Wheelchair Day” for people with wheelchairs from all around the world to meet, talk, and make a good relationship in this expo.
3. Cooperating to drive Accessible Tourism Industry in Thailand
We wish that FD Expo gather all government sectors, private sectors, communities, associations and the people in the tourism industry to show their products, services, create activities in supporting Tourism for All and propelling Thailand to be the hub of tourism for all in Southeast Asia.
Lastly, I would like to inform everybody that we aim to continue our FD EXPO annually until we reach FD EXPO 100th.
Everybody please takes care of your health. Stay fit forever. I wish everybody to have good power, good encouragement, good love, and good friends. So that we can create the good expo that served mankind and our nation for at least 97 more years to celebrate FD EXPO 100th as we wish.
