KPMG & BCCT HIT PATTAYA

Pattaya’s Amari resort was the scene for a British Chamber of Commerce Thailand (BCCT) meeting that was generously sponsored by the big financial services company of KPMG (Thailand). This coincided with the opening of their new KPMG branch office in the city of Rayong, which is the next major city south of Pattaya.

Pattaya 22nd January 2011, PDN: – As the sun set over the sea the new Amari “Tavern by the Sea” entertainment centre proved to be a tranquil setting for this first BCCT event for the year, and for KPMG it was a busy day, because they held two separate business seminars on their very first day of operation. KPMG Thailand is part of a huge global company that although of Swiss origin, it has branches in144 countries and a professional workforce of over 137,000 staff. They operate in all sectors of business from software services through to heavy industry and are respected worldwide for their forward thinking, global mindset and the philosophy of “value adding” for their clients.

The opening of their new Rayong office is targeted somewhat towards the many Japanese businesses in this region, but all nationalities of clientele are welcome with broad ranging services that include visas, work permits, business set-up, advice and management. KPMG’s new office manager Richard Rome was “thrown in at the deep end,” having recently re-located from England, but proved more than capable of the job and acted as KPMG’s spokesman for the evening.

As usual, most of the BCCT Directors and executive officials were in attendance to once again see that yet another British Chamber meeting ran absolutely flawlessly, as only the British can do. Many business people in Thailand would not be aware of the vast amount of government lobbing that goes on behind the scenes to aid the financial and professional interests of the English expat community in Thailand.

This initial 2011 business get-together started right on time and saw a good attendance of both Bangkok members and supporters from the Eastern Seaboard region, so many new business relationships are formed at these prestigious events. The Amari food and beverage division did an excellent job of catering for the large attendance in their newly refurbished Amari “Tavern by the Sea” that was formerly known as “Henry J Beans.” Everyone eagerly looks forward to these monthly events, with information being available from the British Chamber of Commerce Thailand website.
