It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join the Asia Pacific Ireland Business Forum inBangkok on November 16th at the Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn.
This years' event themed "Sustainability – Building Long-term success for Irish Companies in Asia" - will be led by the Minister of State for the Diaspora, Ciarán Cannon, who will be making the first ministerial visit representing Ireland to Thailand. We are also honoured to confirm that we will have fourteen Heads of Missions attending from the Irish Embassies and Consulates all over the Region. They will be joined by business leaders, entrepreneurs and other senior diplomats from the region.
One of areas of focus will include Fintech and Financial services and we are very fortunate to have secured the Former Finance Minister of Thailand and Chairman of the Thai Fintech Association, Khun Korn Chatikavanij, to share his expertise and years of experience in this sector.
We are also delighted that Enterprise Ireland is participating with their client companies and supporting the APIBF in an unprecedented way to ensure that this forum will be one of the most inspiring to date.
The detailed program is attached. You will note that it features three breakout sessions covering the areas of financial services, construction and education.
Please confirm your attendance by registering immediately. The attendance is limited and an early registration is essential.
There are special room rates available at the Eastin Grand Hotel and Cathay Pacific is kindly supporting the event with two premium economy return tickets from Asia to Ireland which will be raffled at the event. They will also be offering special airfares from Hong Kong, Singapore, Seoul, Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai and Dublin.
