Throughout the mission, the Thai Horizontal Military Engineering Company has built strong relationships with local people; established a sufficiency economy learning center; planted agricultural crops; disseminated knowledge among the South Sudanese people and other countries and introduced aspects of Thai culture on various occasions.

Their work performance and living conditions are continually reported to Thailand via a remote video system. They are always ready to perform their mission as best as they can in the good name of Thailand.
