Government Affairs Council

Our Government Affairs Council is composed of an elite group of government relations and public affairs executives from our AMCHAM Thailand corporate members. They liaise with our industry specific committees to define key policy priorities, and engage with relevant government ministries regarding policy and regulatory frameworks.

U. S. Government Relations

AMCHAM regularly hosts visiting US government officials at our monthly luncheons and other events.

As a member of APCAC (Asia-Pacific Council of American Chambers of Commerce), we participate in the annual APCAC Washington Doorknock, where we meet with senators, representatives and high-level administration officials to discuss policy issues affecting American businesses in Asia.
