Princess calls on drug firms to work for benefit of all
HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn urged the global pharmaceutical industry yesterday to contribute more to fight against "neglected diseases" in the developing world.

In the opening speech at the Prince Mahidol Award Conference to 300 participants from various countries, the princess said that producing innovative drugs in the research and development sector was a tough task - but making any achievements that serves all of mankind was even more vital.

"It is well-known that research and development in medical sciences is not easy to achieve as they are time-consuming tasks and require great perseverance. More difficult and complicated still, would be how the results of such achievements are meant for the benefit of all mankind and all countries of the world," the princess said.

Improving access to essential health technologies for neglected diseases was the principle topic for Prince Mahidol Award conference this year.

HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, who is president of the Prince Mahidol Award Foundation, said the issue was selected in order to bring global attention to this important problem and to suggest actions that would improve the health of the most vulnerable populations.

Her point of concern was echoed by the director general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), Dr Margaret Chan, who was a keynote speaker at the event.

"The human suffering [from diseases] is far greater than the 270 cases of avian influenza reported globally over the past three years," Dr Chan said.

Welcoming The Year Of The Pig
Chinese New Year celebrations in Yaowarat quieter than usual this year

The normally bustling Chinese New Year celebrations at Yaowarat in Bangkok yesterday were noticeably tamer than in recent years, when the event would normally receive high-profile appearances from a number of Chinese-Thai politicians in the ousted government. Food vendors and shop owners in Yaowarat said sales were down sharply, with fewer people attending the festival.

Yaowarat's Lunar New Year celebration is normally full of politicians and government leaders, making it one of the most high-profile events of the year.

However, Tourism and Sports Minister Suvit Yodmani was the only cabinet minister to attend yesterday's celebrations.

Mr Suvit represented the government in receiving a pair of auspicious lions from the Chinese government to honour His Majesty the King's 80th birthday. Made from precious white jade, the 10-tonne lions have been placed at Chalerm Phrakiat Gate, the famous landmark of Bangkok's Chinatown.

The festivities began as early as 3am yesterday, when people queued up to touch sacred parts of the Chalerm Phrakiat Gate for good luck.

The number of visitors peaked at around 5pm when HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn arrived to preside over the official opening of the celebrations.

The princess, wearing a red Chinese-style outfit, greeted the crowd, all of whom were decked out in red, and made a short tour of an exhibition on the King's 80th birthday organised by members of the Thai-Chinese community. The festivities are set to wind up today.

China in the eye of a princess
Her Royal Highness Maha Chakrin Sirindhorn is a very down-to-earth sort of Princess. She fell in love with China during a visit to country two decades ago, and has been returning repeatedly ever since. It is the land of China that the Thai princess has fallen so deeply in love with. And for proof, go to Beijing's Capital Museum, where an exhibition of nearly one hundred photos taken by the princess during her many visits to the country are on display.

People living with disabilities in Southeast Asia will soon have more affordable devices to make life much easier as a result of a tie-up between researchers from Singapore and Thailand.

Currently, expensive products from the West dominate the market. Singapore's START Centre is working with Thailand's National Electronics and Computer Techonology Centre to push cheaper switches for the disabled into Asia.

Giving weight to the project is Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand and Minister for Community Development Youth and Sports, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, who launched the event. :flowers:

Both stressed the need to lower the cost of technology for disabled people. :flowers:

Dr Balakrishnan said: "If Thailand and Singapore can arrive at some common standards and increase the size of the market, I think this would help to lower the costs of technology to the people who need it most.":flowers:
