On September 2, CG Stevenson granted a Thai-language interview to Thai Public Television as part of the network’s report on the Chiang Mai Creative City initiative. CG Stevenson emphasized the Consulate’s support to leverage Chiang Mai’s strengths in design and arts through three conferences in 2010 and a series of speaker programs this year. She noted the Consulate is also a member of the Creative City steering committee as part of the Thai-U.S. Creative Partnership. The program will air in two weeks. In addition, CG Stevenson will attend a September 3 dinner to launch the Creative City’s Goodwill Ambassadors, a select group of representatives who will encourage international investment in Chiang Mai.
