Message from your Chamber


Greetings and welcome to this month’s issue of AustCham's Advance online magazine.

The year is quickly coming to a close and the Chamber will be winding down its activities in December and focus on planning for another big year in 2019.

Part of that planning is for the event everyone is talking about – The Great Australian Bash on Saturday 26th January! A special thank you to Linfox Thailand as the naming rights sponsor for 2019.

This past month we welcomed 15 new members into the AustCham business community and their profiles can be seen below. It’s great to have you all on board and look forward to engaging more with you in 2019!

As we move into the season of giving, our Industry Focus for December is “CSR”, and we have series of articles from our Members highlighting their CSR projects below, as well as in our Advance Blog page. Our Members have been doing wonderful work with communities in Thailand and surrounding areas, and the stories below are great insights into how corporations can contribute to local development.

Also, we highlight our activities in November around our three pillars:

Business – Australian Universities Connect briefing; First episode of the Digital Workshop series; Factory Tour of ARB; and the Hospitality & Tourism lunch on the Chinese Market.

Connections – November Sundowners

Community – The Duchess AustCham Golf Tournament  

Finally, the Australian Ambassador to Thailand, H.E. Mr. Paul Robilliard and his family depart today, and we wish them all the best in the next chapter of their lives. Photos from the Christmas Sundowners will be in the next issue of Advance.

Wishing you all a successful month ahead"


Brendan Cunningham

AustCham Executive Director
