The American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand (AMCHAM Thailand) has announced the formation of a Greater Phuket Chapter. AMCHAM Thailand is the leading foreign business organization in Thailand and has recognized the surging economic importance of the island and growing prominence as Asia's leading resort destination.
Since its establishment in 1956 AMCHAM Thailand now has over 660 member companies and almost 2,000 professionals including companies, and individuals. It's important to note the membership is open and includes a large contingent of non-American based companies and also leading Thai groups. AMCHAM member companies provide more than 250,000 jobs in the Kingdom of Thailand and have investments of more than $35 USD billion.
Coordinating the Phuket Chapter is Bill Barnett Managing Director of C9 Hotelworks and John Magee of the Phuket Gazette. AMCHAM is one of just 30 foreign chambers and business associations registered in Thailand. Accepting members outside of Bangkok was made possible by a recent regulation change by the Ministry of Commerce Chamber of Commerce Act.
In October of this year a successful function was held at Laguna Phuket with over 140 local and Bangkok business people attending. Going into next year the Chapter aims to provide a meaningful forum for the islands leading businesses in gaining supporting the ongoing development of Brand Phuket.
Membership includes access to 250 annual events, programs and meetings every year. A series of Phuket events will be held in 2011 and focus on high level subjects relevant to businesses which operate here.
