  • “Border Health” by Saranyoo Suwansa-Ard, Assistant of Songkhla Provincial Public Health Director, addressed crucial aspects of healthcare collaboration in border regions.

This exchange of knowledge strengthens ties between the Malaysian and Thai medical communities, fostering better healthcare outcomes for all.

The well-organized convoy ensured a smooth return journey, culminating at the Sadao Thai Immigration Checkpoint on March 10th.

The MMA Wilayah Cross-Border Convoy Motorcade served as more than just a trip. It fostered a spirit of community among members while establishing a new standard for member engagement through a unique blend of cultural exploration and professional development.
