On Wednesday 17th April 2019 from 3.30 pm (arrival), 4.00 pm (start) at The Oriental Club, Stratford House, 11 Stratford Pl, Marylebone, London W1C 1ES - https://www.orientalclub.org.uk/staging-area/Contact.aspx

There is no charge for entry to this event but all attending must book online at this link - No walk-ins please due to limited spaces.

This event is presented by the British Chamber of Commerce Thailand (BCCT) in cooperation with the Anglo-Thai Society. It is the first of what we hope will be a sustained programme of Thailand business events across the UK. BCCT is looking to engage directly with its 60+ members in UK. BCCT is also hoping to encourage other UK companies to take up the many business opportunities that are offered by Thailand which is now ranked 27th of 190 economies in the World Bank’s Annual Ease of Doing Business survey. In terms of Thailand’s imports, UK’s share is 0.87% compared to Germany at 2.5% and France at 1.8%. The UK is the 23rd largest foreign investor in Thailand. British businesses have some great products and services but we under-perform in Thailand compared to our competitors.

Our special guest panel will highlight the many business opportunities in Thailand, explore some of the challenges and how to address them, and also look at Thailand’s recent economic performance and development plans post-election.
