A Message from Chairwoman 2021

04th January 2021


Dear Members of the Thai Business (Vietnam) Association (TBA),

On behalf of the Board of Management, I would like to wish you a happy new year.

It has been a difficult year in 2020 globally and particularly for the Thai community in Vietnam. All have to figure out to overcome the COVID-19 situation with adaptability for the New Normal. The Board and I sincerely appreciate your cooperation with TBA in carrying out various activities in 2020. We have adjusted the format of our seminars to webinars, besides; we also organized some events with greatly careful considerations of the number of attendees, location, especially the schedule in terms of the direction of the Government in the community pandemic awareness. It indicated a successful year with various activities on seminars, conferences, and Thai community events. I would like to express our grateful thanks to your attention and continued supports.

Aside from the above usual activities of TBA in 2020, we have also created the Sub-groups for members for the business consultation and discussion. We also cooperated with the Royal Thai Consulate-General in Ho Chi Minh City and our members for the donations to help and reduce the difficulties as the effects from natural disasters and the COVID-19. Moreover, TBA has assisted Thai experts to enter Vietnam for their work.

The Board and I would like to thank the Royal Thai Consulate-General in Ho Chi Minh City, TBA Corporate Sponsors, Event Sponsors and our members in providing the financial support and other contributions. I really look forward for your continuing support for TBA activities and the sponsorship in the coming years. We welcome all feedbacks from you for our further improvement of TBA’s operations.

The term of the current Chairmanship and the Board will be ended by early 2021. TBA will hold the new Chairperson election on Wednesday, 24th February 2021. I would like to take this opportunity to invite all members who are interested to apply now as the candidate for the next TBA Chairperson. The deadline for submission is on Monday, 25th January 2021.

Finally, I would like to wish you and your family a very happy new year, with happiness, good health and prosperity.

Sincerely yours,

Saranya Skontanarak
