AMCHAM looks forward to welcoming Michael Heath, Chargé d’Affaires, a.i., for a fireside chat with AMCHAM President, Greg Wong, on the future of economic diplomacy and how the new Biden administration may impact business in the Kingdom of Thailand.
Each speaker has extensive experience in strengthening connections between countries through common business goals.
Over the past year, the U.S. Embassy and AMCHAM built bridges between U.S. firms and the Thai government, establishing an advisory council of prominent U.S. business leaders in Thailand and meeting with all levels of the Royal Thai Government to advise on concrete ways our economies can prosper together.
This event will also serve as the Annual General Meeting for the purposes of approving the 2020 President's report and Audited Financial Statements along with the appointment of the 2021 Auditors.
Statements from this event will be off the record.
Please note that no walk-ins will be allowed for this event.
