On the 26th of July, Hilton Hotel welcomed four Chambers of Commerce, the South African Chamber of Commerce, the Australian Chamber of Commerce, the American Chamber of Commerce, and the British Chamber of Commerce.

General Manager Philippe Kronberg welcomed the guests with nice wines, beers, and lovely finger foods, and expressed his satisfaction of the hotel’s 100 percent occupancy.

Graham McDonald MBE said it’s good fun being the President of the SATCC and hopes to promote more of the South African industry in Thailand, from buildings, to golf cart making, food processing, insurance, and of course S. African wines. Sue of PMTV suggested it should be part of his job description to invite him to S. Africa for wine tasting to be able to come back and do convincing promotion. Graham said I should mention that to the SATCC. So here it is.

Meanwhile the First Secretary – Politics of the South African Embassy, Raymond Manzini stated his wishes to spread the word to Thai people of the many potential investment opportunities between the two countries other than wines. Tourism is of course one of the many aspects, as most people only know Cape Town, but S. Africa has nine provinces, so there is a lot to see.

The evening was sponsored by Hilton Pattaya, CEA Project, SriAyudhaya Insurance, MBMG Group, and MARSH.
