On April 11, 2014, all employees of Thai Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. (TYM) celebrated “Songkran Festival 2014”. Festivities began with the bathing ceremony of a Buddha statue, followed by pouring scented water onto the hands of senior employees as a mark of respect. In return, junior staff received blessings from their senior colleagues.
Although January 1st is recognized in Thailand as the official New Year, the Songkran Festival occurs on April 13-15, marking the New Year on the ancient Thai calendar.
