The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is responsible for Thailand’s bilateral and multilateral development co-operation policies. Its Department of International Organisations (DIO) also makes contributions to international organisations, such as the United Nations and the Asian Development Bank.
Thailand’s development co-operation is guided by the “Philosophy of Sufficiency Economy (SEP)” – a model that Thailand followed for its own development and which aims at providing a balanced and stable development to achieve the SDGs. It looks at modernising economies and societies by coping with critical challenges that arise from globalisation.
Thailand has reported to the OECD aggregate data on its development co-operation since 2006.
