PM’s Office Minister Suwaphan Tanyuvardhana said today (Aug 17) that the party would be from 6pm to 9pm. His Majesty the King had granted permission for the use of the Royal Plaza for the purpose and would also provide food.

The government would invite all local and foreign people who were involved in the rescue. The Interior Ministry had reported that about 61,000 people from 53 provinces would attend the party, Mr Suwaphan said.

Invitations would also go to about 300 foreigners who played a role. Some of them lived in Thailand, but others were abroad, the minister said. He also expected about 8,000 journalists would cover the party.

Mahidol University students would give a concert reflecting the united efforts in the rescue mission, which involved people of different races and religions.

ARCHITECT and HOTELEX

The party would be kept economical and simple.

Twelve boys aged 11-16 years, members of the Moo Paa (Wild Boars) football team and their 25-year-old coach entered the long and winding Tham Luang cave complex in Mae Sai district of Chiang Rai after their regular practice on June 23.

They were trapped inside by a sudden flood caused by torrential rain. Their safe extraction by Thai and foreign divers and backup teams is considered one of the most perilous cave rescues ever undertaken. It was finally completed on July 10.
