Message from your Chamber


“Greetings from your Chamber! As we draw closer to the end of 2017, we’re proud to say that our best is still yet to come at AustCham Thailand, and in November we continue to focus on the three pillars of the Chamber – Business, Connections, Community.

Highlighting the month is our special luncheon with the Minister for Tourism and Sport, H.E. Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, who will provide an update on the Tourism Ministry’s plans for 2018.  Our November Sundowners takes to skies, with an evening at ZOOM Sky Bar, Anantara Sathorn, and our community event for November is The Duchess Annual Golf Tournament. All details can be found in the Upcoming Events section below.

Outside of our major events, we encourage our members to engage with the Chamber at all levels, and this month’s Advance features special guest articles from our Education and Training members in the Industry Focus section.

Also check out the Members’ Corner for updates on Members News, Members Events, and Promotion Offers. If you would like to share your news with the AustCham community, please send your updates through to us.

Wishing you a successful month ahead”
