On Wednesday morning at the J Hotel, North Pattaya, the Deputy Governor of Chonburi Mr. Pongsak Preechawit opened a Seminar to discuss Thailand’s joining the Asean community in 2015. His audience was the Business Operators and Tourism Association of Pattaya convening for its Monthly Meeting, and the key point for future development is strengthening the family bonds.
As Thailand has been beset by narcotics and a devaluation of culture and tradition, strong family bonds is the aim of the Asean pact, to fortify the relationships and intergenerational solidarity in every family of Pattaya’s 120,000 residents, as well as the over 400,000 people who live and work in Pattaya, but come from another provinces.
Small SME businesses will be promoted more than big businesses, and Thailand will welcome more Asean countries to work with and exchange skills and training. This will help develop the economic structure of each country, and starting in 2015, there will be competition between the ASEAN nations for the best products and prices. The business operators need to plan ahead for the future direction of their businesses, and even learn some of the ASEAN countries’ languages.
