On Thursday 5 November 2020 the Embassy of Denmark and DTCC carried out a joint visit to DanThai Machinery Ltd, ETK EMS Asia Production Ltd, and WHA Industrial Development in Rayong.

The purpose of the trip was to introduce the embassy to those of our members living in the Eastern Seaboard area which is a fast-developing industrial area. The challenges in dealing with various local authorities in Chonburi were discussed and the Embassy pointed out that the Embassy can assist in the dialogue with the authorities by acting as a spokesperson for Danish companies in Thailand.

In the evening more companies joined the visiting team (Ambassador Jon Thorsgaard, Trade Counsellor Nils Robenhagen, Torben Wendelboe, and Secretary-General Michael Andersen) for further discussions at the evening dinner at Jomtien Beach. Some of the companies that participated in the Jomtien session was Caretex Asia, Vestergaard, and our new member Danish Linak company recently established in the WHA Industrial Development estate in Rayong.

The tour was arranged by Torben Wendelboe, the Vice President for the Chamber and was planned jointly with the Chamber Office and the Embassy.
