October 31, 2017
Khon Kaen, Thailand – As part of its commitment to the promotion of inclusive economic growth in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS), Mekong Institute (MI) is organizing the 2017 Investor Forum and Business Matching on November 13, 2017 at the Pullman Grand Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand.
The event is designed to link up small and medium enterprises (SMEs) from the 19 Southern Economic Corridor (SEC) provinces in Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam (CMTV) with prospective investors and support their integration into regional and global value chains. SMEs from the CMTV are expected to join as well as buyers, trade promotion agencies and prospective investors from Asian countries and beyond.
The one-day event will feature an interactive discussion on the investment opportunities in the ASEAN with a particular focus in CMTV. Discussants will share their perspectives on emerging business opportunities, bottlenecks as well as mechanisms to boost investment in the SEC and the Mekong countries in general. This will be followed by the on-site business matching to connect selected SME clusters with prospective foreign investors. Participating SME clusters will also be showcasing their products at exhibit booths set up at the venue.
The 2017 Investor Forum and Business Matching is organized in collaboration with Otagai Forum Association as part of MI’s capacity development project on Enhancing Competitiveness of SMEs in the Southern Economic Corridor (SEC) of ASEAN Mekong Subregion (AMS), supported by the Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF).
