The Danish-Thai Chamber of Commerce (DTCC) is a non-political, non-profit orientated legal entity for business people in Thailand who are involved in Thai-Danish business.
The DTCC’s purpose is not only to provide Danish-Thai companies with a stronger collective voice towards the Thai authorities, but also to further promote and expand trade between Thailand and Denmark as well as establish a networking forum for the Thai and Danish businessmen living here or traveling here on business.
Through Chamber events and media, DanCham acts as a forum where ideas, experiences and knowledge are exchanged, and where members will be exposed to an invaluable network in the region.
The DTCC was established on 30 June 1992 as the first Danish Chamber in the South-East Asia region.
To facilitate business opportunities by optimizing synergies between Thai and Danish values and raising standards of socially responsible and environmentally sustainable business practices.
To provide an active forum where members benefit from:
- possibilities for collaboration through network
- access to relevant information
- participation in a network of international and domestic Chambers and trade offices
- exchange views, agreement on common goals and collectively act to achieve these
- promotion of the Chamber and members’ profiles
As a non-profit organization, DanCham is funded entirely by membership fees and revenue generated from events and media activities. The Chamber is run by the Secretary General backed up by supporting Chamber staff.
Every third Thursday of the month, the DTCC’s staff consults with the Board of Directors, all elected by the DanCham members it the Annual General Meeting. Furthermore, the board is divided into active subcommittees in order to further drive the Chamber’s work.
