On March 13, AMCHAM’S Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Judy Benn and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of seven AMCHAM mem­ber com­pa­nies ( ISM Tech­nol­ogy, Spokes Jew­elry, Honey­well, ICPA, Law­plus, Axis and Dej- Udom) met with Pol. Maj. Gen. Su­pa­pol Arun­sit, Com­man­der of Im­mi­gra­tion Di­vi­sion 1 at Chaeng­wat­tana, to dis­cuss im­mi­gra­tion is­sues faced by AMCHAM mem­bers that en­cum­ber busi­ness op­er­a­tions. AMCHAM em­pha­sized its role in help­ing at­tract U. S. busi­ness to in­vest in Thai­land, which con­trib­utes to the growth of the Thai econ­omy and gen­er­ates lo­cal em­ploy­ment for Thais. In this con­text, AMCHAM of­fered its as­sis­tance in en­hanc­ing Thai­land’s global com­pet­i­tive­ness and achiev­ing the ‘ ease of do­ing busi­ness’ tar­get as part of Thai­land 4.0 pol­icy. The meet­ing dis­cus­sion touched upon a num­ber of im­mi­gra­tion is­sues faced by AMCHAM mem­bers and po­ten­tial so­lu­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions.

The ob­jec­tive was to fa­cil­i­tate more U. S. in­vest­ment in Thai­land and for AMCHAM and the Im­mi­gra­tion De­part­ment to jointly make it eas­ier and bet­ter for Amer­i­can com­pa­nies to do busi­ness in Thai­land, be­cause their con­tri­bu­tions are piv­otal to the growth of the Thai econ­omy. The meet­ing was con­struc­tive and fruit­ful. Both sides agreed to con­tinue work­ing to­gether and hav­ing reg­u­lar con­sul­ta­tive meet­ings, with a com­mon aim of mak­ing it eas­ier for Amer­i­can in­vestors to live and work in Thai­land.
