The Royal Thai Embassy, in collaboration with the embassies of Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia and Brunei Darussalam in Manama, will organise an “ASEAN Week in Bahrain” at Thai Mart from tomorrow to Friday at 6-10 pm.
The purpose of this event is to bring awareness of ASEAN and its activities, as well as ASEAN communities in Bahrain to the Kingdom’s public sector and private sectors, media, and the local community.
It also aims to enhance cooperation between ASEAN and Bahrain, particularly since the Kingdom signed the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in Southeast Asia (TAC). There will be ASEAN’s information exhibition space, Southeast Asia’s cultural display booths, food stalls, nonfood products, and souvenirs, as well as a fun game booth for kids at the event.
From 7 pm onwards, participants can also enjoy cultural performances from ASEAN communities in Bahrain such as the Muaythai show from Thailand, Renjis cooking demonstration from Brunei Darussalam, Angklung and traditional dance performance from Indonesia, traditional dress fashion show and dance performance from Malaysia, as well as the Philippines’ live music performance.
The event will follow the health guidelines and measures issued by the Bahraini government throughout the two-day event. The participants will be able to comfortably visit all the booths while strictly following a proper social distance protocol, and hand sanitisers will be provided in every booth.
