Thai-Finnish Chamber of Commerce (TFCC) together with the Nordic Chambers in Thailand organized on 18th October the first Nordic CEO Roundtable breakfast meeting kindly hosted by Nokia Thailand. Our guest of honor was Dr. Siri Jirapongphan, Minister of Energy of Thailand. The theme of today’s roundtable was smart grids and digitalization of Thailand. After Dr. Siri’s keynote speech there was a lively discussion among 12 CEO’s of top Nordic companies in Thailand as well as the ambassadors of Finland, Norway and Sweden.
Nordic CEO Roundtable is a new service concept designed exclusively for CEO- level top executives of the largest Nordic companies in Thailand. It offers a unique opportunity for top level executives for peer-to-peer networking as well as sharing of information and knowledge related to topics of mutual interest. The plan is to organize similar sessions every quarter hosted by each Nordic chamber at a time.
