Australian Auto week in Thailand eyes partnership and investment
The Australian Trade Commission will host ‘Australian Auto Week’ in Thailand from 11-15 June 2012. Bringing together 17 leading Australian automotive companies with operations in Thailand and Australia, Australian Auto Week will showcase the breadth of Australian automotive capabilities and explore potential partnerships and further investment opportunities in Thailand.
Australia’s automotive R&D institutions and component suppliers have a great deal to offer global vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers seeking to improve productivity, design, and quality especially in the areas of making vehicles:
• Fuel efficient, through light weight structures, vehicle electrification, hybrid and gaseous fuel technologies;
• Safer, through better driver information systems, testing and design; and
• More attractive with enhanced features at an affordable price.
The 2012 Australian Auto Week will comprise an Automotive technology seminar, two receptions and product showcases of mission members both in Bangkok and the Eastern Seaboard, an Australian automotive industry delegation visit to Thai factories and an Australian automotive factory open day.
Among the highlights of the week will be ‘Automotive Technology, Testing and Supplier Development’ seminar on 11 June at Novotel Bangna, Bangkok; and the Automotive Showcase and Reception events where all the 17 mission members and other Australian automotive companies in Thailand will display their products and capabilities. The week will conclude with a factory open house on Wednesday 13 June and charity golf day in Sri Racha, Chonburi province on 15 June.

Australian Auto Week follows Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s first official visit to Australia in late May where she met with representatives of the Australian automotive mission to Thailand. The event provides a valuable opportunity to develop strategic partnerships in automotive trade and investment including technology exchange and development assistance to further strengthen trade and investment ties between Australia and Thailand. Australia currently ranks as Thailand’s sixth trading partner by value, with automobiles being Thailand’s major export to Australia.
