Assoc. Prof. Wisanu Supsompon, Deputy Governor of Bangkok along with Mr. Sanon Wangsrangboon, Deputy Governor of Bangkok, Mr. Remco Johannes van Wijngaarden, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Thailand, attended a presentation of ideas and group activities discussion at the ACTIVE Workshop in Bangkok at Rattanakosin Room. Bangkok City Hall, Phra Nakhon District.

Deputy Governor Wisanu said that Bangkok City hopes that the concept of becoming a walkable and cycling city must be realized, not just designed. Right now we have a policy that we are working on which is Bike Sharing, with the first important policy for traveling being the First and Last Mile, traveling well from the starting point to the destination to promote easier use of bicycles.

The Ambassador of the Netherlands expressed his admiration to see everyone participating in the Workshop together to make cycling in Bangkok better. He had ridden a bicycle in Bangkok and believed that it was possible in areas in Bangkok where everyone worked together to improve and solve problems, which are important areas for the city’s development.

The Netherlands Embassy is pleased to support Bangkok. Organizing the ACTIVE Workshop in Bangkok this time, Bangkok is in cooperation with the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management of the Netherlands under the project “Alliance for Cycling and Walking Towards International Vitality and Empowerment” (ACTIVE).
