Overseas brief: King Bhumibol Adulyadej

King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand has been made an Honorary Fellow of the ICE.

The honour was presented by President George Fleming earlier this month at the Klai Kangwol Palace during a presidential tour of South East Asia. The accolade recognised the king's 'exceptional commitment and outstanding contribution to rural and sustainable development in Thailand'. The ICE hopes that the King's membership of the ICE will stimulate the development of Thailand's engineering institution and, in Fleming's words, 'underline the country's commitment to civil engineers in the development of infrastructure to satisfy the needs of its population'.
