The FIABCI-USA Chicago Midwest Council conducted the first of a series of Consular visits with a Thai Investment Forum and Networking Lunch at the Royal Thai Consulate in Chicago on Thursday March 19. We were welcomed by Songphol Sukchan, Consul-General who gave a general economic overview of the beautiful country. We were also fortunate that Polapat Naphavaranonth, Deputy Director of the Thailand Board of Investment New York Office flew into town to deliver a very informative overview of trade flows and investment opportunities including those sectors with government incentives for foreign direct investment. Please visit the Thailand Board of Investment website for more information.
FIABCI-USA will host our Day at the United Nations on Friday March 27. This is the return of our luncheon after many years of construction at the UN. We will host speakers from the International Monetary Fund, the Center for International Private Enterprise and the World Bank in the private delegates’ dining rooms.
The Day at the UN will follow a high level conference co-hosted with our Academic Member George Washington University entitled “Global Real Estate: Where does the Smart Capital Flow?” and will feature speakers from CBRE, Cushman & Wakefield and Morgan Stanley.
