TNCC Meets the Norwegian Ambassador hosted by the Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce
On 7 November 2022, the Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce hosted the TNCC Meets the Norwegian Ambassador at Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok on the occasion of H.E. Ambassador Mrs Astrid Emilie Helle formally taking up her duties as the new Norwegian Ambassador to Thailand and Cambodia on September 2022. The event was successfully hosted as over 50 participants gathered and enjoyed the experience they received.
This event offered an excellent opportunity for various guests to warmly welcome H.E. Ambassador Mrs Astrid Emilie Helle to Thailand. More significantly, this occasion not only provided a chance for everyone to personally interact with the Ambassador but also a great opportunity for them to raise concerns related to Thai-Norwegian businesses or any issues for diplomacy and policy development directly with her. This opportunity also allowed our guests to gain some insight into the Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce and the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Bangkok. On top of that, as various members and friends of the Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce together joined this event, they all got a perfect chance to enhance their business connections during networking hours.
At the event, Mr Axel Blom, the President of the Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce, welcomed Mrs Astrid Emilie Helle and all guests to the event. The speech by H.E. Mrs Astrid Emilie Helle and the team introduction followed. During this session, some key focus areas for the embassy, team introduction, and key contact points at the embassy were shared. The chamber also promoted the chamber’s activities and collaboration with Team Norway in Bangkok. With the great support from Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok and Felicia Design, we were also able to enhance the enjoyment of our guests during our Lucky Draw session.
In this regard, the TNCC is thrilled to be able to provide this opportunity for everyone to participate and share their business concerns with the Ambassador, as well as learning more about the activities from the chamber and embassy and connecting with various guests within the Thai-Norwegian business community. More importantly, we would like to extend our sincere appreciation to our Ambassador, H.E. Mrs Astrid Emilie Helle, for her considerate presence at our event.
Moreover, we would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to our annual partners; Jotun Thailand Ltd., Norwegian Seafood Council, Yara (Thailand) Ltd., and Aibel (Thailand) Ltd. for their kind support to the chamber.
