SweCham Members Dinner, 23 November 2023

On 23 November, SweCham had the honour of hosting our annual Members' Dinner at the Oriental Residence Bangkok Hotel.  We would like to thank everyone who participated in this splendid evening, which featured excellent speeches and networking opportunities. 

The evening commenced with an address by SweCham's president, Mr. Peter Björk, who spoke about the history of the chamber, the pivotal role of the SweCham community in supporting and promoting the members’ interests, the chamber's prospects and Mr. Björk’s goals as president, especially highlighting the aim to significantly increase the number of new members!  

We were very pleased to officially warmly welcome H.E. Mrs. Anna Hammargren, the Swedish Ambassador who delivered a keynote speech, marking her inaugural address to the SweCham community.  The ambassador emphasised the enduring commercial and political ties between Sweden and Thailand, established in 1868 and spanning over 150 years.  She discussed current policy issues, highlighted the work towards the EU-Thailand free trade agreement set for 2025, and reaffirmed the embassy's mandate to represent, promote, and safeguard Swedish interests. 

The concluding speech of the evening was by Mr. Kongkiat Teekamongkol from Camfil, who highlighted the importance and cost of clean air, with a particular focus on the current situation in Bangkok and Thailand.  He emphasised the significance of air filtration systems in combating the health risks associated with PM2.5 and provided concrete examples of how Camfil's systems have improved indoor air quality. 

We wish to extend our warm thanks to all who attended our Members' Dinner.  Additionally, the SweCham team wishes to express our gratitude to the Ambassador for her esteemed presence and support of the Thai-Swedish business community. 

We are immensely grateful for the generous support from our table sponsor EQHO.  Our gratitude also extends to Camfil Thailand, our Beer Sponsor, who contributed to this delightful evening.  Big warm thanks to our Event Partner, the Oriental Residence Bangkok for their excellent hospitality and the delectable food!
