Dr Supareak receives the Most Admirable Order of Direkgunabhorn

Member of the Most Admirable Order of Direkgunabhorn

On 5 August 2022, Dr Supareak Chomchan, Managing Director of Pacific Rim Rich Group Co., Ltd., a corporate member of the Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce and also one of the Board of Governors of the chamber, as well as Vice Chairman of Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce in Thailand (JFCCT), received a royal decoration; Member (Fifth Class) of the Most Admirable Order of Direkgunabhorn, gazetted on 14 February 2022.

His Majesty the King, upon recommendation by the Royal Thai Government, graciously granted the order upon Dr Supareak Chomchan for his outstanding contribution. Thammasat University Council by the Rector, Associate Professor Gasinee Witoonchart, under the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation proposed his name upon his contribution in fundraising for the New Laboratory Building and Development of SIIT Smart Systems to mark the 25th anniversary of Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology (SIIT), Thammasat University. In particular, he played a significant role in the activity as an alumnus and the treasurer of Alumni Association of SIIT who connects alumni to contribute in the fundraising.

The Most Admirable Order of the Direkgunabhorn was established by King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX) on 22 July 1991 (B.E. 2534), to be bestowed upon those who have rendered devotional services to the Kingdom of Thailand. The title “Direkgunabhorn” roughly translates as “Noble Order of Abundance and Quality.” The Order consists of seven classes: I Class Knight Grand Cross, II Class Knight Commander, III Class Commander, IV Class Companion, V Class Member, VI Class Gold Grade Medal and VII Class Silver Grade Medal. Originally, the ribbon for each class was the same, with no device to distinguish the different levels. On 31 January 1995 (B.E. 2538), the regulations were amended to include a device on the ribbon.

On this occasion, the Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce would like to extend our sincere congratulations to Dr Supareak Chomchan for receiving the royal decoration. He truly deserves this honour for his contribution to the Thai society.
