The World Tipitaka Project in 1999 initiated a new proof-reading and the next 5 years editied the printing errors of the previous publication. The new 40-volume edition "the World Tipitaka Edition" was finally printed in 2005 by Dhamma Society in Bangkok.
The Inaugural edition was presented to the President of Sri Lanka by the Her Royal Highness the Royal Matriarch of Thailand during a special pilgrimage to Colombo upon the presidential invitation.
