Thailand is set to host the APEC CEO Summit 2022 with a key theme of focusing on rehabilitating economies after the Covid-19 epidemic. The Embrace, Engage and Enable theme will see a gathering of the world’s top CEOs, policymakers, and other leaders from 21 member economies.

Set to start on November 16-18, 2022, organisers say the summit will be the perfect opportunity to find solutions to current and present issues. Poj Aramwattananont, Chairman of the APEC CEO Summit 2022, and ABAC Thailand Member, says this year’s summit will be the first for prominent leaders to meet in person. He says the programme will include keynote speeches from 10 APEC leaders as well as panel discussions aimed at charting the direction of the world’s economy.

“This year’s summit will be the first time at least 1,000 prominent economists and business leaders are scheduled to meet in person. More than 10 leaders from APEC member economies will give keynote speeches on topics that are of high public interest.”

The event’s organisers say the summit has been designed to be that of a “green meeting” with sustainability acting as a key theme in their philosophical vision. The “green” focus is also meaningful as business leaders around the world have nodded in agreement that there is an urgent need to take care of the environment. Poj also says the venue also offers a good opportunity for the Thai private sector to showcase to the world its potential, be it in food security, investment, tourism, or finance.

And, with Bangkok traffic in mind, the main summit’s convenient location near the other APEC 2022-related meetings and events will help the participants to not get stuck in congestion. The welcoming reception on November 16, 2022, will be held at the River Park, Icon Siam, while the gala dinner on November 17, 2022, will be held at the Royal Paragon Hall, Siam Paragon.
