Sunlabob hosts delegation from European Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Lao PDR

On Oct 5, a delegation from the European Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Lao PDR (ECCIL) visited Sunlabob at its headquarters in Vientiane.

The delegation comprised of decision makers from German companies with subsidiaries in Singapore and Thailand, including the acting director of German Thai Chamber of Commerce (GTCC) and a journalist from leading German economic newspaper, The Handelsblatt. ECCIL’s partner in the organisation of this visit was GTCC and the Lao National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LNCCI).

The purpose of the visit was to gather first hand information about the economic situation and the relevant economic laws in Laos as well as find potential business partners.

Simon Henschel, Managing Director of Sunlabob International Pte in Singapore, gave the delegation a tour of the company, and introduced its programmes and services. He also talked about Sunlabob’s expansion into other countries and markets, and ended the tour with a Q & A session.

Mr Songpon Senguansri, the Assistant Service Manager of ZF (Thailand) Limited, was pleased with the visit and said, “The trip was excellent. We learned a lot about businesses in Laos from Sunlabob’s viewpoint and experience.”

ECCIL plans to have more of such similar visits to businesses in order to keep up-to-date with business trends in Laos.
