Message from President


Dear Austcham Members,

Yet another year has passed faster than a speeding tuktuk.

It’s the right time to look back and reflect on notable moments, memorable people and, of course, AustCham landmarks.

First, a big thank you to outgoing Ambassador, H.E. Mr. Paul Robilliard, and his wife Hanan, for a wonderful four years that have been notable, not only for diplomacy, but also for humour and friendship. And with this, we extend a warm welcome to the new Ambassador, Mr Allan McKinnon PSM with whom we look forward to doing great things for Australia, and Aussies in Thailand.

I am pleased to report that AustCham membership continues to rise with an increase of ten per cent in 2018. At this rate we will soon hit our targeted 400 mark. We have accomplished this through an increase in membership benefits, online promotional offers, our new Members’ Calendar and Members’ News, all of which have been receiving great feedback..."


Brenton Mauriello

President of AustCham Thailand
