Message from STCC President


Ladies and Gentleman,

It is our pleasure to extend a warm welcome to you on the website of the Swiss-Thai Chamber of Commerce (STCC).

Founded in 1998, the STCC has a proud history of fostering a supportive environment for businesses to thrive. Our chamber comprises 200 members from diverse industries, including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as multinational corporations (MNCs). We work closely with private and public sector entities in both countries to create opportunities for our members and support sustainable business growth.

The STCC assists its members in business-related matters, offering a range of benefits and services, including networking opportunities, market intelligence, and support for businesses seeking to expand into new markets. Our knowledgeable and experienced office staff are ready to provide guidance and support.

Furthermore, the STCC collaborates closely with the Swiss Embassy on trade-related matters, ensuring that the voice of the Swiss-Thai business community is heard and that our members receive the necessary support to succeed. This partnership enables us to address the challenges and opportunities facing Swiss-Thai businesses and to promote policies that support their growth and success.

In addition to our collaboration with the Swiss Embassy, the STCC engages actively with the Joint Foreign Chamber of Commerce in Thailand (JFCCT) and the Board of Trade to advocate for businesses with the government. We believe it is essential for the private sector to have a voice in policy discussions, and we work tirelessly to ensure that our members' concerns and needs are heard and addressed. This engagement helps us promote policies that support business growth and create opportunities for Swiss-Thai businesses to thrive.

Moreover, we have been closely following the ongoing EFTA-Thailand Free Trade negotiations, which we believe will bring increased prosperity and cross-border trade between Switzerland and Thailand. We are optimistic that these negotiations will conclude swiftly and favourably, providing a solid foundation for continued economic growth and expansion between our two countries. We are persuaded that a strong, dynamic, and mutually beneficial relationship between Switzerland and Thailand is essential for sustainable economic growth and prosperity.

It is of utmost importance to us that the STCC is an inclusive organization, welcoming members from diverse backgrounds and representing a wide range of perspectives. We are convinced that this diversity strengthens our community, and we are dedicated to fostering a culture of inclusiveness and collaboration within the Swiss-Thai business community.

Whether you are an experienced business professional seeking to expand your network, or a member of the public interested in learning about the Swiss-Thai business community, we invite you to explore our website and discover the offerings of the STCC.

We thank you for your visit and encourage you to reach out to us if you have any questions.
