The Greatest King: The Country’s Source of Life

THE COUNTRY'S SOURCE OF LIFE Throughout the 70 years of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s reign, His Majesty had initiated more than 4,000 projects for the benefit of the country and the people. Among those, more than 2,000 projects were related to water and irrigation.

Her Majesty entrusted Thanphuying Suprapada Kasemsan and Col Rewat Boonthap to prepare a rai of land to grow around a hundred trees to set an example for the locals. The project was called…
