The Global South-South Development (GSSD) Expo 2022 will be co-hosted by the Government of Thailand, the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) under the theme “Advancing South-South and Triangular Cooperation for Sustainable COVID-19 Recovery: Towards a Smart and Resilient Future”. The GSSD Expo 2022 is scheduled to take place from 12 to 14 September 2022 at the United Nations Conference Centre (UNCC) in Bangkok, to showcase evidence-based successful development solutions and initiatives, in collaboration with United Nations agencies and all partners.
This will be the 11th GSSD Expo, the first one to be hosted in the Asia-Pacific region and the first to be convened in hybrid formats, both in person and virtually, leveraging the latest digital technology. The GSSD Expo 2022 features online activities, which began in November 2021 and will lead up to the main event in September 2022.
As part of the GSSD Expo 2022, Thailand, through Thailand International Cooperation Agency (TICA), Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will launch Thailand Virtual Exhibition in March 2022 to showcase Thailand’s best practices and development approach. Leading up to the launch, TICA invites you to participate in 3 types of contest, namely slogan, photo and video clip contests.
