Chamber of Commerce in Bangkok
Thai-Chinese Chamber of Commerce was found in 1910 by Mr. Gao Xue Xiu,
the First President. The Chamber was firstly located on Chagkawat Road,
then was moved to Sathorn Road in 1930. The opening ceremony of the new
building on Sathon Road was honorably granted by His Royal Highness
Majesty the King Rama VII alongside with Her Royal Highness Majesty the
Queen on 14 January 1930.
At that time, apart from the Chamber's office, in the same area, there
were a Chinese School namely Chung Hua College and Thai-Chinese Chamber
of Commerce Auditorium. Many years later these two facilities were
turned into the modern new sky-scrapper, ThaiCC Tower. For those who
used to study in Chung Hua College, the images of two old buildings are
still in their memory.
On 25 October 1995, another memorable day of Thai-Chinese Chamber of
Commerce, the Chamber's office has been relocated from the old house to
newly build sky-scrapper, ThaiCC Tower. The 35-floors height tower
stands firmly behind the elegant Thai-Chinese Chamber of Commerce house
which is now converted to Thaigin Restaurant. ThaiCC Tower was
honourably opened by H.E. Prime Minister Mr. Chavalit Yongjaiyut on 8th
Since 1910, from the first President to the present
President, Thai-Chinese Chamber of Commerce has known as the biggest
Chamber of Commerce in Thailand with approximately 130 directors on the
board and more than 1,000 corporate members.
The Thai-Chinese Chamber of Commerce is
the oldest Chamber of Commerce in Thailand. It was established in 1910
and has been facilitating trade between Thailand and China since its
establishment. Due to its open door policy, business and trade
activities between the two countries have been increasing more and more
with each coming year. As China has shifted from central planning to a
market economy, a lot of Thai businessmen are going to China to grab
this business opportunity in the region.
The Thai-Chinese Chamber of Commerce has become very active because most
of its members are either Chinese citizens or Chinese with Thai
nationality who have been living and successfully doing business in
Thailand for a very long time.
The Chamber's aim and objectives as defined in its By-Laws as follows:
- To promote internal and external trade and to promote support to the
members engaged in the trade and industry within the framework of rules
and guidelines laid down by the Board of Trade of Thailand.
- To collect statistical data, information on trade and industry for
educational purpose, as well as other specific related area of trade.
- To establish rapport and cooperation among the members of the
Thai-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and between the other Chambers of
- To analyze and resolve trade conflicts between the two countries and
provide arbitration in such matters with the mutual agreement of parties
- To provide help and donations to public charities.
- To be and remain apolitical in all its dealings and activities.
The Chamber attaches great importance to the development of economic and
trade relations between the two countries and regarded it as a major
pillar of friendly relations. The Chamber welcomes Thai investors to
invest in China and likewise encourages Chinese investors to invest in
Thailand. With the joint efforts made by two sides, economic and trade
relations between the two countries have prospered with each passing
The Thai-Chinese Chamber of Commerce now no longer issues passports but
continues to provide advisory and information services on trade and
industry to member as well as to the non-member local and foreign
