Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation chose to host its International Conference on Family Planning or ICEP 2022 in Pattaya from November 14th to 17th, 2022.
Pattaya mayor Poramese Ngampiches on Friday, August 19th, revealed that he planned to welcome the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which will fly to Pattaya to host its International Conference on Family Planning (ICEP 2022) from November 14th to 17th at Pattaya Exhibition and Convention Hall.
Poramese said that the purpose of this conference is to exchange knowledge, research findings, and innovations on establishing a family and supporting a healthy lifestyle in rural households. About 15,000 leading figures in relevant fields from 150 countries will attend this meeting, the mayor said.
The reason Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation chose to host this conference in Pattaya, according to Poramese, was that Pattaya was ready in several aspects such as location and culture. He believed that this conference will make Pattaya even more reputable and bring lots of tourists to the city.
It was not immediately clear if Bill or Melinda Gates themselves would attend.
