Section 3: Our King
His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great is a significant role model for Thai scientists. His methodical, comprehensive research integrated simple and natural solutions and modern management systems, which led to the development of various initiative royal projects. Consequently, his thinking principles and philosophies are accepted worldwide to be guidelines for sustainable development.
During His Late Majesty’s reign, he travelled across the country to the most rural regions to understand the citizens’ situations better, within the context of their social geography. These journeys helped him help figure out the most suitable solutions for each area, which included four aspects: soil, water, wilderness, and people.
His Late Majesty’s renowned deeds and competence have been widely acknowledged internationally and nationally. The explicit evidence can be seen from rewards, prestige, and patents of his inventions granted by many international organizations.
