Anuwat co-leads NEA course for entrepreneurs and exporters

IAS Advisory co-founding partner Mr Anuwat Ngamprasertkul was delighted to join the practical training course, “Essential information for operating an export business,” which took place between 1st–5th September 2023.

The course, held for 120 selected entrepreneurs as well as other invited parties, was led by various experts in international trade and exports and was packed with 10 intensive topics for five days of in-depth discussion and thought leadership.

Sessions focussed on the preparations that are needed to be a successful exporter, such as business planning and marketing, cost and price structuring, payment methods, logistics and customs procedures, data analytics, among others.

My session involved preparing the exporter for key legal matters, such as how to structure a legally sound business organisation, how to identify and mitigate risk, how to prepare a proper legal contract with fully aligned terms and conditions, as well as a contract drafting checklist and negotiation plan. I was delighted to share the intellectual property session, also on Day 4, with co-speaker Ms Tatchaporn Natprasertkul, partner at WE Intellectual Property Co., Ltd.

The event was organised by the New Economy Academy (NEA), part of Thailand’s Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP), Ministry of Commerce, and took place at the Four Wings Hotel in Bangkok.
