Bangkok also has a “sister city” deal with St Petersburg.

At the meeting, the two sides expressed interest in economic, scientific, technical and humanitarian cooperation, the organisation of joint cultural and sports events, restoration of tourist exchanges, and the strengthening of bilateral relations.

Chadchart also invited Russian communities and business people living in Thailand to participate in Bangkok’s upcoming festivals including the Open-Air Film Festival and frequent Music in the Garden events.
