The Commerce Ministry helped young Thai entrepreneurs break into the ASEAN Economic Community market with its second Young Entrepreneur Network Development program in Pattaya.
Adul Chotenisaporn, deputy director of the ministry’s Foreign Trade Department, chaired the launch of “Season 2” of the YEN-D project at the Sea View Garden Resort June 24.
The program is aimed at helping Thai business owners under the age of 45 expand into Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam.
The training program runs through July 15 and was open to entrepreneurs from the other CLIV nations, with the goal of enhancing network between them and their Thai colleagues.
According to a ministry survey, the program has generated more than 1.5 billion baht in investment and other foreign business related trade into Thailand.
Adul said younger business owners are devoted to rapid and effective development of their business and are usually open-minded to all innovative transformations.
It aims to provide young entrepreneurs with better access to knowledge, technologies, relations, and efficient instruments for the realization of their business projects, train young people in organization and development of business, creating a forum for interaction and experience exchange, and create an environment conducive to the continuous growth and development of young entrepreneurs’ businesses.
