The COVID 19 virus has impacted tourism, MICE and all sectors of the Thai economy, in addition to health and safety. It has impacted the global economy. Government support responses are welcomed by the business community. They have objectives about health and safety, business continuity, cushioning high levels of unemployment, contractual issues (eg force majeure administration and consequences), and where possible, other economic relief and support. The Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce in Thailand (JFCCT) haveis addressing all these areas.
As a service to member organisations, of which the Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce is one, JFCCT provides information about government support, kept up-to-date as best possible in a fast changing policy environment. JFCCT will also provide members’ recommendations on changes to these support and relief measures, in order that they may best meet objectives and avoid collapse. Such issues include digitisation, digital government, some means of salary support, partial income assurance, avoidance of foreclosure/eviction and possible changes to the law. JFCCT will publish these. Please contact the Chamber by e-mail [email protected] with any concerns about coverage or terms of these measures, or recommendations you may have.
