At the Queen Sirikit Botanic Garden (QSBG) in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand, RBGE director of horticulture Dr David Rae concluded the agreement with QSBG director Dr Kongkanda Chayamarit.

Rae said afterwards: "RBGE is already doing work in this very important part of the world so it is very sensible for us to have close links with QSBG."

The two gardens are already collaborating on developing a web-based fern identification tool and in documenting the area's rich biodiversity through the Flora of Thailand project.
