Doing Business in Thailand

SATCC Website – www.satcc.info

The SATCC website is the major communications vehicle for the chamber with all members receiving event notices by e-mail. Reports on various topics are posted and archived on the site thus giving members access to a wide range of reports and other useful information 24-hours a day anywhere in the world.

Networking Opportunities

  •  Joint   SATCC/South   African   Embassy    Networking Evenings – these are organised jointly with the South African Embassy – especially when they can coincide with visiting trade  missions. Sponsored by SATCC members,   they   provide an excellent opportunity for networking.
  • Networking Evenings – sometimes combined with other chambers, are hosted at the various facilities of member companies and are open to non-members thus widening the networking base for members and providing public relations exposure for the host.

 
Business Presentations

  • Briefings and Presentations – Organised for when speakers present subjects of specific interest to a small group of members or if members wish to present their company’s services.
  • Special SATCC Luncheons – Subject to the availability   of   high-profile   speakers – usually Thai Ministers, senior officials or senior   executives   visiting  from  South Africa.  SATCC  Committee  Lunches  are also  held  on  a  regular  basis addressing subjects  across  a  wide  range  of  areas including Property & Infrastructure, IT & Internet, Human Resources, Insurance etc.
  • Dinners – Usually organised when a senior government or private sector representative as a guest speaker or when SATCC is hosting a combined Chambers’ event.

Thai Language Functions

Training Seminars – Organised  in  tandem  with member companies, these are designed to provide Thai employees with some new ideas on a wide range of skill-based and computer-related subjects.

Briefing

Members can utilise the experience and knowledge of the  SATCC  Board  of  Directors  for face-to-face meetings  with  visitors  from  overseas,  business colleagues, new arrivals in Thailand, etc.

Lobbying

The SATCC is an active member of the Board of Trade of Thailand. This organisation lobbies the Thai government on a wide range of issues affecting foreign chamber members. As stated above, we also have close links with many other foreign chambers.

Charities

Many SATCC members support their own specific Charities. However, for those who wish to contribute, the Chamber actively backs the Rhino Orphanage in South Africa  and the Rice Seeds Child Sponsorship programme here in Thailand.

Publicity/Sponsorship

On  the  commercial  side  this  can  include  paid advertising on the SATCC website. Other publicity vehicles   include  annual sponsorship or that of a one-off event, preparation of an appropriate article for the website, company profile, press release, hosting a factory or site visit etc.

Trade Missions

Overseas trade missions have been organized to Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia and the Philippines over the last few years.

Thai companies with investment opportunities in South Africa
