On November 17, Ambassador Davies hosted a roundtable discussion with 13 Thai entrepreneurs who gave him a briefing on the current state of the entrepreneurial ecosystem and the challenges and opportunities that they face in starting a business in Thailand. “You are the future of Thailand, the AEC region, and the world. As entrepreneurs, you help drive economic growth and build stable communities” said Ambassador Davies. The group was made up of social entrepreneurs, tech start-ups, SMEs, Makers, Venture Capitalists, and Angel Investors. The different points of view expressed by the group made for a very lively discussion and provided Ambassador Davies a comprehensive view of the existing ecosystem.
