The European Association for Business and Commerce (EABC) was established in 2011 as a platform representing interests of the European business community in Thailand. The overall objective of the EABC is to contribute to improvement of the business and investment climate in strengthening Thailand toward a competitive and attractive investment destination as well as a potential gateway to ASEAN. The EABC aims to facilitate investment and further diversify market opportunities and access for European companies in Thailand. In parallel the EABC endeavors to promote Thailand as a high potential trade and investment market for European business.
The EABC is committed to working closely with European businesses, the Royal Thai Government, the EU Institutions, and the Chambers of Commerce as well as counterparts in Thailand, in ASEAN, and in Europe. Every year EABC issues a position paper with recommendations by the European business community in Thailand for the Thai government.
Our main activities include carrying out policy and advocacy dialogues, building consensus, providing support to European businesses about trade and investment, and organizing key events to foster opportunities for European businesses in Thailand. The EABC is a part of a strategy of the European Union (EU) to support the internationalization of European SMEs and other European enterprises by enhancing market access, in particular, in emerging and fast growing markets such as Thailand and South East Asia.
