On behalf of the Thailand Board of Investment, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your support in the online distributing of information about our "Unbeatable Thailand, Unparalleled Opportunities" investment seminar on May 29, 2012, to The Asia Business Connection members. Without your assistance in inviting guests, the seminar would not have been so successful and well attended.
This event helped enhance cooperation between The Asia Business Connection and the Board of Investment. We again thank you for your support and look forward to working with you in the future.

Secretary General, Thailand Board of Investment
I would like to express my sincere appreciation for all of your kind assistance to the BOI seminar on May 29. The event went very well. I would say that without your assistance in distributing the invitation we won’t receive such a good attended as it was.
We also received very positive responds from many attendees after the event. These success was part of your contribution that I would like you to accept my great appreciation once again. I look forward to our future cooperation and if I can be of any assistance please feel free to contact me.

'Preformed Line Products (Australia) is a Western Sydney based manufacturer of products for the power, communications and solar industries. Regional operations extent into a number of countries in SE Asia and our membership of the Western Sydney Business Connection and Asia Business Connection plays an important and positive part in enabling us to have access to a wider source of information through contact with other member organisations at the various functions and meetings arranged by both WSBC and ABC.
A number of business opportunities have also been identified and pursued as a direct result of our participation and membership of the WSBC and ABC during the last 5 years . We regard the WSBC and ABC as the most effective organisations of their type within Western Sydney. '
Managing Director, Preformed Products
'Our organization is a significant firm of Chartered Accountants based in Western Sydney but part of a global network. We are part of the Western Sydney community and whilst we benefit from it we recognize the need to and responsibility to give something back as well. A stronger business community in Western Sydney will benefit all participants.
The Western Sydney Business Connection (WSBC) and the Asia Business Connection (ABC) have provided us with the opportunity to do just that and to increase our recognition within the community.
WSBC is recognized as a superior business organization running excellent networking events with a far reaching audience. It is not parochial, other than in representing Western Sydney, and therefore the participants come from a wide cross section of the business community with many of the major enterprises involved. There is an opportunity to network with community leaders and decision makers, to share ideas and experiences and to meet the people that count. This organization is unique in that it represents an entire region and is the envy of many other regions.
ABC is the only networking organization which has a non country specific focus on Asia in Western Sydney. It is a separate organization but linked to WSBC through its membership and history. It was formed as an initiative of WSBC as a separate organization to ensure this focus was maintained. ABC has been successful in promoting Western Sydney to Asia and other areas of Australia and we are now very much on the international radar, with ABC being well known to the major countries of the region. Obviously, this is not due to ABC alone but I like to think we have made a contribution. ABC also provides opportunities for our local businesses to build helpful relationships and knowledge to facilitate their individual success in engaging with the other countries of our region.
The Western Sydney Business Connection and the Asia Business Connection have given us the opportunity to network with a variety of organizations to raise the profile of our business and increase our awareness of issues affecting our community whilst, at the same time, giving us an opportunity to contribute to the development of our region.
We are actively involved with all Connection activities and will continue to participate in the future.'
