The Danish-Thai Chamber of Commerce is a non-political, non-profit orientated legal entity for business people in Thailand who are involved in business between Thailand and Denmark.
The purpose of the Danish-Thai Chamber of Commerce 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 forum for networking among 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 Chamber was established on 30th 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 network of international and domestic chambers and trade offices
- exchanging views, agreeing on common goals and collectively acting 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 Chamber’s staff consults with the Board of Directors, all elected by the DanCham members in Annual General Meeting. The board is furthermore divided into very active subcommittees to drive the Chamber further in its work.
What can the Chamber do for you?
The main objective of DanCham is to strengthen the network of Danish and Thai corporations in the region, as well as promoting and developing trade links between Denmark and Thailand.
The Chamber aims to provide members with ample opportunity to network and learn more about doing business in Thailand. Through very popular monthly networking events, conferences and seminars with high ranking speakers treating matters that affects trade in the region. The Chamber brings along a national touch by hosting the traditional Danish Christmas and Easter Lunches. A perfect occasion for our Thai connections to experience a piece of Denmark.
The new website www.dancham.or.th and bimonthly Danish-Thai Trade News aims to update our members of current affairs of the chamber and the progress of our members. Our media will act as a member to member platform of updates of what is happening with the Danish-Thai business community.
Through these activities the Danish-Thai Chamber of Commerce is, alongside the Embassy of Denmark, a key institution in keeping the Danish business community informed on the latest political and economic developments in Thailand, and in providing a forum for open and frank discussions between Thais and Danes on contemporary issues of concern.
In addition the Danish Chamber works closely with the European Commission to Thailand and Asia House in Denmark. Joint events are often held with other bilateral Chambers in Thailand, in particular the Nordic Chambers of Commerce (Sweden, Norway and Finland).
The Danish Chamber furthermore plays an active role in the activities of the Joint Foreign Chamber of Commerce Thailand (JFCCT). The JFCCT, representing more than 9000 members, has a number of very relevant sub-committees that do an excellent job in improving the business environment in Thailand to the benefit of both Thai and foreign investors.
