AustCham Thailand's Commonwealth Sundowner in Bangkok shows business is back on track

The Pan Pacific Hotel turned on their glowing charm, providing an excellent environment for AustCham's  Sundowner which has grown to great status in social success and tonight was no exception! 
Mission: The Australian-Thai Chamber of Commerce (AustCham Thailand) was the first Australian Chamber to be formed in theASEAN region. It was established in 1977 with the charter to promote business relations between Australia and Thailand.

The Chamber acts as a contact and information point for Australian businesses in Thailand, Australian businesses wishing to trade with or invest in Thailand and similarly for Thai enterprises interested in doing business with or in Australia.

AustCham Thailand aims to provide quality and constructive input into the formulation of policies impacting on business (both by the Thai and Australian Governments), and their administration, and to contribute to the development of relations between the two countries.

Showing the might of the British EmpireKhun Meow provided the touch of glamor and dazzle that set the flashes popping on the cameras.
Khun Meow is an excellent example of developing business skills under direction of her Western Employer. Khun Meow demonstrates enthusiasm and dedication at her new found career and has risen to Manager level at Bangkok Rocks. She may not complain of the perils of the job but and it's certainly aa challenge infusing the staff Thai Culture with Western (Farang) business disciplines and of course there are the Patrons.

Last month the world seemed to be coming to an end in her beloved city. From her Inner city apartment the view down Sukhimvit showed the horror. Buildings ablaze, black smoke billowing from what was the city's shopping Icon. Now it's about the challenge of rebuilding, presenting confidence and re assurance to International patrons, that Bangkok is once again the Dynamic and city that welcomes all.
