The Andaman Sea is a body of water located in the Indian Ocean, to the west of the Malay Peninsula and the east of the Indian subcontinent. It is bordered by several countries, including Thailand, Myanmar, India, and Indonesia. The Andaman Sea has long been considered a geopolitical hotspot due to its strategic location, which has made it an important trade route and military theater throughout history.
Thailand, in particular, plays a significant role in the Andaman Sea region due to its strategic location at the southern end of the Malay Peninsula. The country has long been a key player in regional politics and has worked to promote peace and international understanding in the Andaman Sea region.
Expedition Andaman Sea aims to promote international understanding and support international relations by creating awareness about the geopolitical importance of the Andaman Sea region. As part of this goal, the expedition will lay a wreath to honor and commemorate those who have served and engaged themselves for peace in the Andaman Sea. This gesture serves to underscore the importance of peace and stability in the region and the efforts of those who have worked towards this goal.Jochen Werne – Expedition Leader
One of the key ways that Thailand has supported peace and international understanding in the Andaman Sea region is through its participation in regional organizations such as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Thailand has been a member of ASEAN since its inception in 1967 and has played an active role in promoting regional cooperation and stability.
