Dear Friends and Members of the STCC
As we bid farewell to another extremely challenging year and enter 2022 with a hearty dose of optimism, I wish you on behalf of the STCC Board of Directors a prosperous and successful Happy New Year, but foremost good health prospects for you, your families and your business associates. As we are working on closing the books for 2021 and assessing our business prospects for 2022, many of us would agree that we are still dealing with a very unpredictable environment, both socially and economically.
POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
After careful consideration and discussion of the recommendations of the Thai government regarding the development of the pandemic in Thailand, we have decided to postpone planned and co-branded STCC events for the month of January.
We deeply regret that we have to postpone once again the events that have been planned for months, but hope to be able to hold them at a later date.
We are pleased to announce that the STCC team has been significantly strengthened with the addition of another full-time staff member! Ms Nuttinee Angsakularporn (Jannie) now holds the new post of Deputy Executive Director and Business Development at the Chamber.
Khun Jannie has extensive experience in business affairs, having worked at the Swiss Embassy in Bangkok for the past 9 years as Trade, Tourism, and Education Advisor. We look forward to adding her skill set at the Chamber office to further expand our services and benefits to our members. Through her longstanding working relation with Switzerland Global Entreprise (S-GE) we also aim to strengthen our strategic partnership with S-GE by offering free basic services to Swiss and Liechtenstein companies interested in expanding to Thailand.
BANGKOK, December 14, 2021 – After being severely hit by a surge of COVID-19 cases in the third quarter of 2021, Thailand's economic activity has subsequently rebounded and is expected to grow by 1.0 percent this year, according to the World Bank’s latest Thailand Economic Monitor“Living with COVID in a Digital World” published today. Going forward, the adoption of digital technologies has the potential to support Thailand’s recovery from COVID-19 and ensure a more competitive economy over the longer-term.
Economic activity is expected to return to its pre-pandemic levels end-2022, with progress on vaccinations and a resumption of tourist arrivals providing support for the recovery. Growth is projected to accelerate to 3.9 percent in 2022 and 4.3 percent in 2023, driven by a recovery in service sector activity. If the current pace of vaccinations of around 750,000 per day is maintained, and in the absence of a further resurgence of COVID-19, consumer confidence and international tourist confidence are expected to be strengthened.
👏Congratulations to IGNIV Bangkok and their whole team for their first star in the Michelin Guide Bangkok 2022! 👏
Barely one year after the first IGNIV outside of Switzerland opened in Bangkok, IGNIV Bangkok at The St. Regis Bangkok earns its first Michelin star in the Michelin Guide Bangkok 2022, joining the ranks of Michelin stardom alongside IGNIV restaurants in St. Moritz, Bad Ragaz, and Zurich.
Congratulations to Chef David Hartwig and his entire team for achieving this extraordinary milestone in these difficult times! We at the STCC are proud to have them on board as a member and look forward to future collaborations!

RIS SWISS SECTION DEUTSCHSPRACHIGE SCHULE BANGKOK
With many of its community members returning to Bangkok from holiday travel, the school temporarily returned to distance learning in the first school week of January 10-14. This not only created an additional "safety buffer," but also allowed teachers to plan and execute the start of school in a way that did not degrade the pedagogical quality of instruction by fragmented class units. The school returns to face-to-face classes following its well-proven safety protocols in the second week of the semester.
The winter break was also welcome opportunity to complete some long-overdue renovation and remodeling work.
Our redesigned school office combines a new entrance and secretarial area with spacious work areas for the administrative staff. In the sports hall, a brand new EPDM rubber floor provides students with increased injury protection during physical education classes. And our marketing team has put some finishing touches to its new off-campus office at the beginning of Soi 184 and is looking forward to welcoming parent groups for activities such as language courses in the new seminar room.
