    Thailand in the World

     

    12th International Conference on Thai Studies

    University of Sydney

    Sydney, Australia

     

    Tuesday 22 – Thursday 24 April 2014

     

    The University of Sydney will host the Twelfth International Conference on Thai Studies (ICTS12) in April next year.   This is a reminder that proposals for panels are due by the end of this month.  Full details of the conference, and the online forms for panel and paper proposals and for registration are available at:

    Since 1981, ICTS has been held every three years at different universities in and outside Thailand.  This will be the first ICTS to be held in a city outside Thailand that has a significant Thai population, and this will help define the over-arching theme of the conference. Thailand in the World also anticipates the ASEAN Community in 2015, recognizes the globalization of the Thai economy, and follows a longstanding interest of ICTS in the broader world of Tai cultures beyond Thailand’s borders.  As previously, the conference will be also open to a wide range of themes in the field of Thai Studies.

     

     

    We look forward to seeing you in Sydney in 2014!

    Thai Prime Minister HE Yingluck Shinawatra made it clear that Thailand is open for business in an address at a special dinner hosted by the Australia-Thailand Business Council and the Asia Society Australia Centre in Sydney. The Thai Prime Minister was touring Australia to mark the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Australia and Thailand and was accompanied by senior Thai ministers and a 70 person business delegation.

    On Wednesday 2 May, The Australia Thailand Business Council convened the
    inaugural Thai-Australia Business Dialogue, involving senior stakeholders in the
    business relationship. Attendees included the Thai Ambassador His Excellency
    Maris Sangiampongsa, representatives from the Thai Embassy and Consulate,
    Thai Trade and Board of Investment, Austrade, the Australia Thailand Chamber of
    Commerce in Thailand, the Australia Thailand Institute, the Department of Foreign
    Affairs and Trade, the Board of the Australia Thailand Business Council and CEO’s
    and members of the ATBC which are some of the largest businesses involved in two-
    way trade. The event was kindly hosted by King & Wood Mallesons in Sydney.



    Great optimism was shared among participants regarding the business relationship
    and strength and resilience of the Thai economy. Two-way investment totalling
    almost $5bn in the past year does emphasise the greater Thai focus on Australia
    as an investment destination with nearly $3bn invested here and Australians only
    investing $1.9bn in the Thai economy.



    Participants in the forum focused on developing and supporting a focused business
    agenda for the Thai Prime Ministerial visit from Her Excellency Prime Minister
    Yingluck Shinawatra in May and looking for opportunities for further and deeper
    business relationships between the two countries. As a result of the success of
    the dialogue, we are committed to ensure this event is a regular feature of the Thai
    Australia Business Council calendar in future.
