Danish Constitution Speech in Bangkok

Mads Beyer, Counsellor (Political) and Deputy Head of Mission at the Royal Danish Embassy in Bangkok, was guest speaker at the regular once-a-month Wednesday Dinner of DABGO Bangkok on 6 June 2012 at Admiral’s Pub & Restaurant in Sukhumvit Soi 29, Bangkok.
 The Counsellor spoke on the subject of the Danish Constitution as it was the day after the Danish Constitution Day – a national holiday in Denmark with a tradition of speeches on various aspects of the constitution.
 Mr. Beyer outlined the structure and main focus of the Constitution and gave his assessment why the constitution was not likely to be changed anytime in the foreseeable future even just to modernize the language.
 The discussion after his speech touched on issues like voting rights for Danes living abroad and the reduction in Danish pensions for Danes living outside the EFTA countries.
