Mr. Santi Bhirombhakdi
President of Singha Corporation Co., Ltd.
Thailand is a country with a proud history and culture. Muaythai, for the Thai people, is a national treasure and has been a part of our history since our ancient days.
We are undoubtedly very proud of our treasured national sport, but what makes us even more proud is the fact that Muaythai has become truly global.
Singha and Boonrawd have been a large part of the more recent history of Thailand and both have become an integral part of Thai society. We are involved in many local environmental support programs, cultural events such as traditional festivals and cultural education, as well as organising and supporting many sporting events. It is so our great pleasure to be bringing Muaythai into the worlds focus and towards achieving the highest sporting honour through the IOC campaign.
We also fully support the Muaythai program “Sport is your Gang” as giving back is also a strong part of Singha’s objectives. It is my honour, in the name of Singha, to welcome the President of SportAccord, the President of the World Games, IOC members and so many other dignitaries from around the world to Thailand and I would like to take this opportunity to offer you all a heartfelt thank you for fostering and preserving Muaythai on its journey to sporting prowess.
