Thailand is all set to host the APEC CEO Summit 2022 from 16 to 18 November at Iconsiam's True Icon Hall convention centre under the theme "Embrace, Engage, Enable".

The summit is a gathering of chairpersons, CEOs and top business executives from the 21 economies comprising Asia Pacific, where they engage in dialogues with APEC leaders in discussing some of the most pressing issues and identifying practical solutions for the sustainable prosperity of the region.

The gathering is expected to play a vital role in achieving economic growth, social development and renewed well-being of the people in Asia Pacific, via a coordinated dialogue on such topics as trade, investments, and innovation.

Some of the world’s top-notch leaders from both the business and government sectors, as well as those from APEC economies, are expected to speak during the in-person summit, returning in a face-to-face format for the first time after two years.

Dr. Poj Aramwattananont, APEC CEO Summit 2022 chair, said that the summit posed a "great opportunity" for Thailand. "Being the second largest economy in Southeast Asia with half a trillion GDP - over 70% from exports, 40% from industry sector, and 50% from service sector - this is a proud moment for Thailand to showcase our strengths, particularly our tourism and financial service industries, as well as our food industry, which contributes greatly to the world’s food security."

As the venue for the global summit, Chadatip Chutrakul, CEO, Siam Piwat, a joint owner of Iconsiam, added that the global summit is expected to bring "mutual benefit to the surrounding businesses including more than 40 leading hotels, historical tourist attractions, and river transport operators" and reinforce the Chao Phraya River’s position as a global destination for visitors from around the world.
