Meeting with Royal Thai Consul General in Hong Kong

Tull Traisorat, Consul General of the Royal Thai Consulate General, called on Chamber CEO George Leung on 9 December to exchange views on enhancing cooperation between Thailand and Hong Kong. He was accompanied by Deputy Consul General Sorayod Kumbunlue and Business Information Center Officer Therdkhwan Paewsawang. 

CG Traisorat said the Thai government has been in talks with the Hong Kong government to enhance cooperation in six key areas, namely financial services, creative industry, trade & investment, manufacturing relocation, human resources, and science & technology. He said the Thai government placed a lot of importance on the country’s participation in ASEAN, the GBA and in turn, the BRI.

He also introduced the Eastern Economy Corridoor (EEC), the government’s latest strategic development initiative, which aims to connect Thailand’s Eastern provinces Rayong, Chonburi, and Chachoengsao to the rest of Southeast Asia and China and act as a channel to improve interconnectivity in the region. The Eastern Economic Corridor Office of Thailand (EECO), chaired by the Prime Minister, is a one-stop-shop for investors and simplifies business procedures significantly. Up to 13 years of tax exemptions for corporate tax and personal income tax are available to encourage businesses to set up there.

The two sides agreed to work more closely with chambers and trade associations in Thailand and Hong Kong to build business connections for businesses in both regions.
