The course will also serve to cultivate business networks and to open up new opportunities for senior management, business owners, public officers, industrialists and investors of the two countries to forge cordial relations among themselves.
KCBL Class 1, held during January 19 – April 11, 2024, is joined by 43 participants, with prominent experts and those with important roles in the Thai business sector and trade with China as speakers. A study visit to the “Nan Sandbox” project in Nan province will be organized during January 28-30, 2024, with the aim of presenting to Chinese business leaders the effort to create sustainability for communities under the concept of “Human Cohabitation with Forests”. KCBL participants will not only immerse themselves in Thai culture, understand the Thai business context in depth, and build concrete business networks through theoretical studies, but they will also gain practical experience through a field trip.
