In mid-November Denmark’s new Ambassador to Thailand, Uffe Wolffhechel; Head of Trade Peter Sand; and Trade Advisor Phannaporn Churuphant visited the two Danish companies ECCO Shoes and Royal Copenhagen.
At ECCO the Embassy staff met with Managing Directors Bo Grabowski and Gitsada Boonchirt; Vice Chairman Peter Emil Romhild and the management team, who conducted a tour of the factory facilities.
After this the delegation headed to Royal Copenhagen, where they met with Managing Director Mogens Staib Hansen and Quality & New Product Development Manager John Jørgensen and saw the production on a factory tour.
“It is always fruitful to meet with the Danish companies in Thailand. We strive to keep a close relationship with the companies for mutual benefit. We learn a lot about the working conditions here in Thailand, which enables us to provide better assistance to Danish companies,” Ambassador Uffe Wolffhechel said.
He continued: “The two visits particularly illustrated the value of the talented, creative and loyal labour available in Thailand. We also learned that Thailand is still offering training in engineering specialities that no longer exist in Denmark.”
