On 17 December 2018, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the French Republic to the Kingdom of Thailand, H.E. Mr. Jacques Lapouge visited Mae Fah Luang University to discuss further academic collaboration between MFU and the French Republic.
In the discussion, the Ambassador paid specific attention to MFU’s PhD degree programmes especially in the fields of cosmetic science, agriculture, and management. Moreover, the French Embassy and MFU explored the possibility of scholarship, student and lecturer exchanges as well as further cooperation between MFU and French institutions. MFU also purposed that the Embassy should invite the Nobel Prize laureates from the French Republic to give a special lecture that inspires generations and disseminates knowledge for Thai people.
All in all, this visit from the Ambassador of France to Thailand led to possible fruitful cooperation in terms of PhD programmes, student and personnel exchanges, and special lectures. The deeper collaboration would indeed encourage an exchange of people and knowledge as well as strengthen relations between the two countries.
