On 13 March 2023, Mrs. Ureerat Chareontoh, Director-General of Thailand International Cooperation Agency (TICA), Prof. Dr. Ngo Thi Phuong Lan, Rector of USSH, Ho Chi Minh City, and Ms. Wiraka Mudhitaporn, Consul-General of Thailand in Ho Chi Minh City, jointly presided over the inauguration of the "Exhibition on Sufficiency Economy Philosophy (SEP) in Vietnam" at Room P10-01, 10th Floor, at Thai Center located on Thu Duc Campus of the University of Social Sciences and Humanities (USSH), Viet Nam National University, Ho Chi Minh City.

   This permanent exhibition aims to disseminate and promote the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy (SEP), a homegrown approach which provides a strong foundation for Thailand's national development, and its application in Vietnam, among USSH students and faculty, as well as Vietnamese people who are interested.

   The exhibition presents the concept of the SEP from theory (three fundamental principles and two underlying conditions) to practice, its application in daily life, and environmental conservation, including (1) Natural Agriculture; (2) The Five Levels of Plants and Three Forests for Four Benefits; (3) The Nine Steps to Sufficiency Economy Livelihood; and (4) The New Theory- techniques for land and water management in agriculture on a small land. The model of the New Theory for households is also displayed in the exhibition.

   It also features the scaling up and application of the SEP in many countries, including two projects in Vietnam:  

            (1) The Project on Sustainable Community Development based on the Application of Sufficiency Economy Philosophy in Thai Nguyen Province, implemented from 2019 to 2023. Together with experts from Maejo University, three Friends from Thailand (FFT) volunteers who had expertise in tourism management, tea product development, and environmental management, worked on this project.

            (2) The Project on Sustainable Development of Coastal Communities Based on Ecotourism and the Application of SEP in Ben Tre Province, which was implemented from 2016-2020 and supported by C.P. Vietnam Corporation.
