    he year ahead marks the 50th an-niversary of Canada-Thailand officialrelations, and it's shaping up to beone of the most important years so

    far in our bilateral relationship. Working inclose partnership with the Canadian businesscommunity and our Thai partners in businessand government, we will be seizing the op-portunity this anniversary affords us to giveCanada-Thailand relations a boost.

    We are already seeing much forwardmomentum. Direct investment in bothdirections has hit record levels withScotiabank's and CANADOILs increasedcommitments to Thailand, but in pastweeks we have also seen PTTEP make itsbiggest foreign investment ever, and it wasin Alberta's energy sector. Our countries are

    becoming more interdependent, with mutualinterests tangibly growing. The Embassyteam and I are going to go all out this year tosupport and encourage more investment inboth directions. We will also try to encouragemore new-to-market Canadian exporters inThailand, and we are determined to tacklemarket access barriers wherever they areunwarranted or unreasonable. 2011 will seeCanada put more emphasis on energy sectorrelations, high tech, transport, agriculture andeducation sectors in particular. We will also beputting our efforts into deeping relationshipsin Cambodia and Laos, using Bangkok as

    a natural staging point, with plans for high

    Toward the Next 50 Years

    level trade and investment missions to bothcountries. Canada also has assertive plansto deepen relations with ASEAN as a wholeand with the broader Asia region. We will play

    our part here in Bangkok in support of theseCanadian efforts.

    This will be a big year for the political rela-tionship as well. The Government of Canadais responding positively to Thai Governmentrequests for capacity building in democraticinstitutions and processes following lastyear's political crisis. With a Thai electionlikely as early as this spring, our Embassywill play its natural role in monitoring eventsand engaging the players involved to advance

    the interests of Canada and Canadians. Gov-ernment-to-government relations are set todeepen in terms of security cooperation thisyear, and we are planning several senior-level

    visits in both directions. Canadian companieshave called for active Canadian political sup-port for the Canada-Thailand relationship,and I can confidently say that the CanadianGovernment is heeding that call.

    I am pleased to advise that Canadawill step up the pursuit of its political andhumanitarian interests in Myanmar (Burma)this year, especially to support a growingcivil society and strengthen democraticforces. Canada's voice regarding Burma on

    all matters of concern to Canadians will be clearlyheard. Political and social relations with Cambodiaand Laos will be active on several fronts, with CIDAprogramming and further Canadian governmentactivities and engagement on the increase.

    The Embassy's consular role is as important asever, with the number of Canadian visitors to Thai-land approaching 200,000, and with tens of thou-sands more to our other countries of responsibility,

    namely Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar/Burma. Wewill also continue to do everything possible withinour mandate to support the approximately 10,000Canadians living in Thailand and neighbouringcountries.

    I am excited to say that this year will also havesome special features. As part of our 50th Anniver-sary of Canada-Thailand relations, we are workingwith Canadian companies to have the highest-impact Canada Day events for a generation. TheEmbassy will also be launching a new CanadianAwards for Excellence initiative, which we plan toannounce soon and which will complement theTCCC's own Business Awards. We are also working

    with an extraordinary Canadian performance groupto help them become a centrepiece in the BangkokDance and Film Festival in October. Moreover, weare working on Thai youth programming to see moreyoung Thais working in Canada, and our CanadaFund will increasingly focus on supporting youngpeople and vulnerable communities in Thailand.

    The Board of Investment (BOI) has made a major move to promotehealthcare industry investment by expanding the scope of activitieseligible for promotion to cover hospitals, rehabilitation services, special-ized medical service, medical technology services and medical logistics,

    and offering additional incentives to promote more investment in hope of helpingto upgrade the countrys medical technology.

    Mr. Chaiwuti Bannawat, Minister of Industry, said that the board of theThailand Board of Investment (BOI), chaired by Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva,approved the BOIs plan to upgrade its incentive offerings for healthcare industryinvestment projects. The move will support the countrys competitive strategythat focuses on healthcare industry development.

    The new incentives include redefining the scope of hospital business as

    healthcare-related business in order to cover five other businesses as follows:1. Hospitals: the current condition covers only hospitals with more than 50

    beds. The new measure will cover hospitals with more than 30 beds, whichis in line with the minimum condition set by the Ministry of Public Health.

    2. Rehabilitation service business: At present, the country still lacks qualifiedrehabilitation service centers which provide physical and mental rehabilitationservices to their own patients or to patients referred from other departments.Since at present this medical service is only provided in large scale hospital,the government considers that this segment should be promoted.

    3. Specialized medical service: This is to promote Thailand as the hub forspecialized medical services, such as cancer, heart and allergy centers.

    4. Medical technology service: This is aimed at promoting cooperation andsharing of high-value medical equipment among hospitals. The list of medi-

    cal equipment included under this condition will be provided by BOI.5. Medical logistics service: This is to promote the availability of providers ofspecialized logistics services for efficient patient or medical staff transport.

    These five kinds of businesses will be granted corporate tax exemption

    for 5-8 years according to their locations in order to avoid problems related tomedical personnel. The corporate tax exemption is limited to 100 per cent oftotal investment value. These businesses will also receive import duty exemp-tion privileges on all imported machinery or equipment throughout the projectlifecycle because medical technology changes quickly.

    Mr. Bannawat added that the meeting also approved incentives for existinghospital upgrade projects. This includes the import of more technologically ad-vanced medical equipment for use within a hospital. This condition is applicableto all existing hospitals, be it BOI-promoted or non-BOI promoted.

    Hospitals currently promoted by the BOI may apply for new incentivesunder this program once their corporate income tax exemption period ends.Hospitals without corporate income tax exemption incentive are also eligiblefor this incentive. Interested hospitals must present their medical equipmentand machine upgrade plan together with their application by December 31,2012. The projects must be completed within three years after the issuance ofthe investment promotion certificates. The approved projects will enjoy importduty exemption on machinery and three-year corporate income tax exemptionon the existing business operation for no more than 70 per cent of the totalinvestment (excluding land and revolving capital). They will also enjoy corporateincome tax exemption.

    The meeting also assigned concerned government authorities, such as theMinistry of Public Health, the Immigration Department, the Ministry of Financeand the Ministry of Education to facilitate and provide assistance needed.

    For example, concerned government agencies should help solve problemsrelated to the transporting of patients in critical condition into the country andencouraging private hospitals to offer courses in Medicine

    Healthcare industry in focusBOI offers more incentives toencourage rapid development

    As Canadian Ambassador in Bangkok, my

    top priorities include serving Canadians travelling,working, and living in the region, and to help ourcompanies to succeed here. I am privileged tohave such a talented and committed team at theEmbassy to work with in support of these aims,and I remain highly impressed by the leadership ofthe TCCC in tangibly supporting two-way businessinterests. I am particularly excited by the potential Isee for deepened partnerships among Canadiansto promote our values and our interests, which areincreasingly intertwined with those of Thailand. Wehave done much together over the last year to morevisibly signal our commitment to the relationship,and Thai authorities and partners have noticed and

    are responding favourably. This year we can do evenmore, and I know we will do so by working together.Bring 2011 on!

    The Great Canadian

    You missed a fun filled evening if

    you didnt attend this years GreatCanadian BBQ on Saturday, January22, 2011. Upfront, we thank our

    sponsors, Ambassador Hoffmann, AndreaHoffmann and the Canadian Embassy stafffor all of their support in ensuring a successfulevent.

    As in prior years, the BBQ was held on thelawn of the Ambassadors official residencewith one of the largest Calgary Stampedeinspired groups to ever attend. The BBQmaintained its traditional down home focuson great food and family fun with plenty of freeflowing Canadian beer and wine, as well as an

    outstanding selection of country & westernmusic provided by the Outlaw Brothers Band.

    Catering support for this years event wasalso outstanding with Courtyard by Marriottproviding grilled marinated rib eye skewers,BBQ pork with onions and pineapple, chickenteriyaki skewers and more. While the BritishClub served up a wide array of salads includingpotato, mixed greens, Greek and grilledchicken with cranberry, as well as a completeBBQ menu offering pork ribs, hamburgers,sausages, hot dogs, grilled chicken, beefkebabs, baked beans, chili, corn on the coband baked potatoes. Desserts included apple

    and berry crumble with hot custard sauce,fresh seasonal Thai fruit and the eternalfavorite of most kids and adults chocolate,strawberry and chocolate chip ice creamcones.

    When it became time to select the BestStampede Outfits in the Men and Ladiescategories, the judges were certainly offereda large group of qualified contestants. Infact, the ladies category was so competitivethat the judges were required to declare twowinners during years event. However, whilethe men and ladies competed vigorously tobe the Best of the Best in their respective

    category, the hands down favorite was a smallgun totting Cowboy by the name of ThomasWillats who stole the show and garneredspecial recognition. Now I understand whyW. C. Fields never wanted to share the limelight with a small child. He was clearly awareof being upstaged as validated by Saturdayevenings competition.

    Another exciting part of this years BBQ wasthe Lucky Draw and Raffle which offered somewonderful prizes including: several BlackBerryTorch devices provided by Research In Motion(RIM), Cross pens by the Royal Bank ofCanada, gourmet jelly beans by Jelly Belly,Genesis Skin Klinik gift vouchers, AlexanderKeiths and Kokanee beer, and a CanadianParty in a Box, Canadian wines and more.

    We look forward to sharing another greatevent with you in 2012 !

    The Chamber kicked off its 2011 Speaker Luncheon Series with featured speakerKhun Pimpaka Nichgaroon, Head of Research for Thanachart Securities. As aprior luncheon speaker, Khun Pimpaka is known for delivering a pragmatic andinsightful presentation and her talk on "Thailands 2011 Economic Outlook" was

    no exception. Key takeaways included:

    Thailand is entering a new and more sustainable economic cycle For the first time in 5 years, the domestic economy is emerging as the countrys key

    economic driver Earnings growth is showing signs of sustainable improvement, reversing its long-term

    trend With a strengthened domestic economy, the case for fund inflows is now clearer than

    ever And, the banking sector may be one of the leading players in this economic cycle,

    followed by consumer goods, property and building materials. While showing signsof improvement, the tourism sector could counter as a more cyclical player.
