AVPN Global Conference 2023 | 20 - 22 June 2023





Building the ecosystem

AVPN is building the ecosystem for social investors with an active presence in Thailand - from foundations and impact funds to corporations, intermediaries and beyond.
A middle-income country with strong collective values and proud history of independence, Thailand is an emerging economy, heavily export-dependent, with exports accounting for more than two-thirds of gross domestic product (GDP). Thailand is a pivotal market in SEA owing to the concentration of multinationals in Bangkok. It is a hub for investment companies and NGO’s in SEA. Famous for tourism and hospitality, Thailand has difficulties ahead for sustainable tourism and reducing harm to the environment and could sustain more healthy domestic tourism.
