On 7 October 2021 Mrs. Ureerat Chareontoh, Director-General of TICA attended the second APCD Executive Board Meeting chaired by Dr. Tej Bunnag, Secretary-General of the Thai Red Cross Society. The meeting acknowledged the reports on activities during April to September 2021, including Disability Inclusive Business (DIB) and Training, International Cooperation, Network Secretariat and IKM Activities, and it noted that some were suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The meeting agreed to reappoint Mr. Piroon Laismit as the Executive Director of APCD for another 4 years.
Thailand International Cooperation Agency (TICA) supports APCD in implementing activities under the international cooperation framework to strengthen APCD’s role as a regional center on disability through trainings, knowledge exchanges and networking. This demonstrates TICA’s commitment towards the achievement of SDGs that leave no one behind and the goals of the Incheon Strategy to “Make the Right Real” for Persons with Disabilities in Asia and the Pacific.
