On 24 August 2016, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs held the "TICA Connect", the event which is the latest platform for exchange and sharing knowledge on development diplomacy for the first time at Vithes Samosorn, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

However, the first TICA Connect had one more special objective which was to launch the new logo of TICA. The logo represents the collaboration with all stakeholders by showing a string of 4 jigsaws connected to one another. At the far left is a small pie in red linked to a half circle in blue, which in turn is connected to a three-quarter circle in red, contiguous is a full circle in blue. It is meant to simplify a complete circle of collaboration.
