Australia Thailand Business Council, Resurgent Thailand: Future Prospects Through Australian Eyes Seminar

ATI SUPPORT PROVIDED: $11,000

The Australia Thailand Business Council (ATBC) hosted a seminar in Melbourne on 20 October 2010 to provide insights into Thailand's current political and economic situation for people seeking to do business in Thailand.

The program commenced with an academic seminar opened by the Thai Ambassador, His Excellency Dr Kriangsak Kittichaisaree and was followed by a business forum and luncheon at which Mr Lindsay Fox, founder of LinFox, gave a keynote address focussing on his business experience with Thailand. Leading Asian business advisers also shared their experiences and successes in Thailand during an interactive session.

Over 100 participants attended the event. The seminar facilitated exchange between the academic and business communities and highlighted investment and trade opportunities in Thailand. The event also provided an excellent opportunity for businesses, decision makers and academics to promote the Thailand Australia Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA).
