Message from The President

Dear Members,

I am honored to step into the President of the European Chamber of Commerce Thailand (EABC) role. It is with great enthusiasm that I embark on this journey and look forward to working closely with each of you to continue advancing the interests of our dynamic and diverse community.

EABC has a rich history of fostering strong business relations between Europe and Thailand. As we move forward, my primary goal is to build on this foundation, ensuring that EABC remains a vital platform for advocacy, networking, and business development. Together, we will navigate the evolving economic landscape and seize the opportunities it presents.

One of the most exciting prospects on the horizon is the ongoing negotiation of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Thailand and the European Union. With the third round of negotiations scheduled for June 2024, this agreement holds significant potential for our members, promising to open new avenues for trade, investment, and collaboration. By reducing barriers and enhancing market access, the FTA will create a more favorable environment for European businesses in Thailand and Thai businesses in Europe.

In the coming months, we will introduce initiatives to enhance member engagement, provide valuable insights, and support your business endeavors with our advocacy efforts. Among these initiatives is the development of a new position paper in 2024, which will outline our strategic priorities and advocacy goals. We highly value your voices and input in this process, as your perspectives are crucial in shaping a comprehensive and representative document.

Your feedback and active participation are essential to our success. I would like to encourage you to share your ideas and perspectives, attend our events, and engage with the various Working Groups of EABC. The EABC team is at your disposal for any further information that you may need regarding the working groups. By working together, we can achieve a greater impact and ensure that EABC remains a strong voice for the European business community in Thailand.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to EABC. I am excited about what we can accomplish together and am confident that our collaborative efforts will drive meaningful progress for all of us and Thailand’s development.

Warm regards,

Paranee Adulyapichet
European Chamber of Commerce Thailand (EABC)
