Foreword

Welcome to the

Thai-Sweden Review Message by Jan Eriksson President Thai-Swedish Chamber of Commerce

Dear Members, TSCC’s Thai Sweden Review once again serves you with an exhaustive edition, this time focusing on education! Within this segment the Chamber has a growing interest in the form of an increasing number of corporate members, including several prominent Swedish universities that are seriously staking on Thailand and the region! This sector has turned important for us, where the interaction between Sweden and Thailand is an obvious feature and where education also means business and also contributes to the continued success for our corporate members: students doing thesis work out at companies and contributing to improvements and business success; and students gaining the skills and international experience much sought after by these corporations/businesses. For young Swedes Thailand is clearly attractive in this regard, as a destination (compared to the rest of the world’s many choices) and what can be offered within internships and education – including key contribution from the Chamber. Read how TSCC is building up a critical mass within education, with the new Bangkok alumni of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) recently launched, and Jönköping’s School of Engineering’s expansion of their ‘Campus Southeast Asia’. The business startup case Ash is also among the interesting stories. Ash was set up by Swedish entrepreneurs here in 2009 as a marketing, distribution and retail company selling Swedish fashion accessories such as TRIWA watches and Urbanears headphones. The first Ash retail store opened in Bangkok 2012 while own distribution channels have ensured that its products are on display in more than 500 stores in Thailand and Singapore. No small feat in two of the most competitive retail markets in the world, where Swedish entries usually are big and raised in Sweden when they take the dive. Ash however is a Swede born in Thailand! This issue of our magazine is finalised just before our Swedish National Day dinner party on the 6 June at Radisson Blu Plaza Bangkok. I am sure you who attended, enjoyed the Swedish-inspired food, humour, dance and music! I wish all of you a wonderful summer break, be it here in Thailand or back home in Sweden. The chamber is back with new events in September! Jan Eriksson, President

The cab structure of the new Volvo FH is designed from scratch. The result? The safest cab we’ve ever built. You’d have a good chance of surviving a collision with a stationary object – even at 80 km/h. We know because we subjected it to the Swedish Impact Test, the toughest there is. It had to withstand 17 tons of pressure on the roof and 29.4 kJ of impact to rear and A-pillars. But a sturdy construction is not much good if you’re struck by a flying object inside the cab. That’s why we crash tested the fittings, too, over and over again.


Thainess that Swedish interest in Thailand is still strong or is it shifting towards other destinations? Statistics show a slight decline in visitors from Sweden. We believe it is because of the structure of the trips. Our tourists are looking for something else than beaches now. We can also see that right now Swedes tend to take shorter destination trips within Europe, to Spain and the Canary islands.

“Thainess” Tourism Authority of Thailand’s new concept to attract Scandinavian tourists back to Thailand By Andrea Hessmo

A

fter decades of successful Nordic tourism to Thailand’s paradise beaches, it’s easy for us Scandinavians to believe that we know the country well and that we have seen it all. But the reality is that most tourists have only seen the surface of what this culturally rich and multifaceted country has to offer. Tourism to Thailand from Scandinavia as well as from the Baltic states is officially managed by the Tourism Authority of Thailand in Stockholm. The office in the Swedish capital was recently awarded the Grand Travel Award (GTA) in Oslo, Norway, in the category “The best tourist office.” Meet Pakkanan Winijchai, the recently appointed Director of the office in Stockholm for a chat on new strategies for the Nordic market.

Congratulations for winning the GTA award. Could you please tell us about the background to this prize. We are honoured to receive this award. Three directors before me have worked hard for it and earned it. This is the first time this prize was awarded outside of Norway. Here in Stockholm we work closely with travel agents and operators to promote Thailand as a tourist destination. We have a long relationship with all the travel agencies and all the tour operators who voted for us. We help them with information and we work with them to create packages for their clients as well as on joint advertising and promotion. Thailand is an established and popular holiday-destination for many Swedes. Would you say

You are now launching a campaign ”Discover Thainess” in response to this as a new way to promote Thailand. What exactly is Thainess? Thainess is the way of life of Thai people, it’s our culture, the variety of festivals, Thai food and cooking as well as Thai boxing which is very popular in Scandinavia as fitness exercise. Thailand has mostly been known for its sandy beaches. For repeating visitors we now want to offer them a new angle focusing more on Thai culture and way of life. We launched “Discover Thainess” just now in January 2014 in Bangkok and we are currently in talks with our new pr firm on how to expose Thailand to the new leisure market. This means active holiday packages that involve meditation, spa & wellness and activities such as golf, bicycle, mountains and rock climbing. Thailand is still an affordable destination and repeating visitors spend less and less so we are also looking for a new segment of first time travellers. How do you find living in Stockholm? I arrived in Stockholm in August 2014 and will be staying for four years. I think the people are very nice and friendly, the city is beautiful and the quality of life is very good. I feel safe here with my son. Also, I’m learning the Swedish motto: there is no bad weather just bad clothes. What do you miss from home? Thai food! Back home I didn’t have to cook whereas here I have to. Some of the Thai restaurants in Stockholm have to adjust the taste to the local Swedish tongue. But luckily, if we tell them to make it really Thai they do it. What are your general plans for the future? I’m new here and I want to keep it up to people’s expectations. We really would like to make Thailand the dream destination again. We want to make a come back with our new angles that we have on offer.

Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting 2015 Text and photos: Joakim Persson

T

he 2015 edition of the Annual General Meeting of the Thai-Swedish Chamber of Commerce (TSCC) was held, traditionally at Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit in Bangkok on On Thursday 26 February 2015. The AGM saw two veterans within TSCC, in particular Worachai Bhicharnchitr, resigning after 25 years of service! Worachai is the only Governor of the Board that have served the Chamber since its inception. Kenneth Radencrantz also resigned after a many years of service, mainly due to retiring back Sweden, where he and his wife will spend a larger part of the year onwards. Jan Eriksson (Spica), Hakan Alm (Vision House), Lars Andersson (Capaciton) were resigning and running for re-election. Anders Olsson (MDVAColor) and Joakim Persson (ScandMedia) were nominated as new Governors to the Board. These were all elected by the AGM with a big majority along with Bjรถrn Richardsson (Oakwood Residence), Christer Nilsson (Media

Partner), Dan-Åke Enstedt (Saab Asia Pacific), Eric Hallin (Rembrandt Hotel & Towers), Fredrik Bergman (Diakrit), Jacques Michel (Volvo Group), Johan Nordqvist (Amadeus), Lars Svensson (Oriflame Cosmetics) and Sutti Manokitjarunman (Elextrolux Thailand). The Chamber reported on the Activities and Events from the past year. Many events were co-organised with the Nordic chamber partners, as well as other international Chambers in Thailand in order to offer more quality events on a win-win basis. “Increased co-operation gives more for less,” Director Peter Bjork reported. The most important event during 2014 had been the celebration of TSCC’s 25 Years Anniversary with a 3-day exhibition and a gala dinner, which had taken up most of the resources in terms of planning and execution as the main activity during the year. TSCC needs to have such a big project each year in order keep up the revenue stream needed, the AGM was told. President Jan Eriksson (also re-

elected as such by the new Board) reported on the Chamber Strategy, which includes having established working committees within the Board. Chairman of each is a Board member. TSCC is also a member of Board of Trade Lobbying activities take place both directly and indirectly. Indirectly TSCC is involved through JFCCT, various committees and EABC. “Sweden is rather well represented,” commented Jan Eriksson. He underlined what TSCC spends a lot of time in these groups and also in connection with the other foreign chambers. Directly TSCC communicates with the Thai Government and public institutions in Thailand. Among the things the Chairman mentioned from these activities was the interest of Thailand’s current government to simplify things for foreigners working here. A result is that the 90 days reporting will soon become electronic.

The AGM continued reporting, and commenting, on the balance sheet and financial result for the year and with a comparison with previous year, plus forecasting. The Chairman said that the Chamber had set up some KPIs with includes getting more members as one driving force. In 2014 TSCC had 120 members, of which 43 were individuals, 58 corporate and 19 Premium members. Membership income increased year by year. Following on the AGM, TSCC members and guests enjoyed a Dinner with, traditionally, a special Guest Speaker for the Dinner, this year Dr. Don Nakornthab, Director of Macroeconomic Policy Office, Bank of Thailand.

STRENGTHENING CONNECTIONS TSCC instrumental in strengthening connections between universities and corporations. By Joakim Persson

T

he Thai-Swedish Chamber of Commerce (TSCC) is seeing a new dawn for universities as members, not least among Swedish education institutions who are making inroads into Thailand and Southeast-Asia, in line with demands among large Swedish universities to offer students an international stint as part of their studies. The corporations are increasingly requiring graduates groomed in the challenges of international business, as these are by nature operating overseas since long, and with growth and investment expected to be very high in Asia in the next fifteen years to come, at least. The Swedish industries and business sector increasingly need to prepare themselves for opportunities

and needs over here. As a region with strong potential it is also attractive for Swedish exchange studies, apprenticeship and thesis work. Equally, Swedish higher education, increasingly appeals to Thai students as a strong choice with its high quality rankings, despite the discouraging change that tuition fees are no longer free for foreign non-European students in Sweden. Within this TSCC can play a role, and is already providing assistance to KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Jönköping University’s School of Engineering each year in connecting with the Chamber’s many Swedish corporate members. Peter Björk, the Executive Director at TSCC has been driving this forward, as the Chamber is staking on

strengthening this sector further as part of its activities and member portfolio. “I think it has to do with my personal connections but I hope we have established this within the Chamber so that it can continue independently. And it’s good for us to be involved in the education sector. Because education is also business – in particular over here,” says the Executive Director. “I was much more active before I started as Executive Director, assisting Swedish universities and Thais to connect. And we made programmes and prepared well over 300 Thai students. This is much less now but I still have all the contacts, and I’m interested in this. So we are trying to utilize these contacts within TSCC as a base.”


TSCC - Thai Swedish Chamber of Commerce

Celebrating the signing of the Chapter Agreement of KTH Thailand Alumni during an event held at CentralWorld, Bangkok. “If we go back a few years, there was no university as member, and only some intern on and off. Since I had worked a bit before with KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, and some Thai universities, and then with Jiraya Chanchon, now our Project Manager, who came from studies in Uppsala and did her internship we found some kind of critical mass in terms of academic, university and student contacts. Then we got started.” “KTH was first, then Borås University joined as a member, followed by AIT (Asian Institute of Technology) who had a Swedish Professor as President, Dr. Said Irandoust. Then everything came together and suddenly gave us a critical mass and some members. That’s how it began.”

“KTH has been present here in Thailand, and in Singapore not least, for a long time, but they do not have many Swedish students in Thailand yet. They have a strong exchange of students with Singapore. They have started an Alumni chapter in Bangkok last fall.” “KTH have collaboration with the universities Kasetsart, Chulalongkorn and Khon Kaen. And before they were partnering up with AIT. They have student and teacher exchange. To develop joint education programmes is the next step,” says Jiraya. Connecting to the 25th anniversary celebration of Thai-Swedish Chamber of Commerce in 2014 where KTH joined the Exhibition, Professor Anders Hult, Director of International Affairs for Southeast Asia, KTH-Royal Institute

of Technology, Sweden, along with his attendants visited Chulalongkorn University and Kasetsart to discuss about collaboration expansion and to visit campus attractions. The most recent Swedish university having joined TSCC is Jönköping University and its School of Engineering (see also separate story). “Jönköping seem to be very positive, and their whole management see this Thailand effort as part of their Asia strategy. So that’s really great, and we have become a kind of partner to them, since our member companies can offer places for their students,” says Peter. Jönköping participated as exhibitor at the 25 Years Anniversary ‘Beyond Innovation’ event at CentralWorld and

could, by doing so, get face-to-face connections with most key Swedish companies with presence in Thailand and being TSCC members. And their annual Swedish exchange students get an introduction by the Chamber. “Around 20 students came to visit us at the Chamber and were informed about Thailand, and almost all became

14

www.swecham.com

members for a subvention price, so they can partake in all events, if they would want to,” tells Jiraya. Jönköping’s example to pick Bangkok as its Asian hub is a telling example that the region is earning increased attention from Swedish educational institutes, and can be a leading example for more to come. “I think there should be room for

more universities; the business schools and technical universities. They could become members and use that as a gateway to establish contacts and find students. They do their traditional exchange student partnerships but this comes and goes. If we could get a few more universities we could also do more for them as a group, in the form of services and initiatives,” says Peter. He says TSCC has some natural contacts that they are nurturing. From among the Jönköping students one has also done his internship at TSCC, where an in-depth members survey has been performed, which will hopefully lead to valuable insights for the Chamber about its future direction, based on recommendations and comments from the members that were interviewed. Also, TSCC decided two years ago to launch a scholarship project, where a few member companies sponsored Thais to study a Masters degree in Sweden. Two students were sent, to the universities in the cities of Västerås and Karlstad. “They were sponsored to study for free, plus a flight ticket and visa costs covered,” explains Jiraya. TSCC is aiming at another scholarship round next year in 2016.

önköping University, School of Engineering has already made itself known to many within TSCC by sending out Swedish exchange students to member companies for apprenticeship, or thesis work. In addition during the spring of 2015 one of the internships was at the Thai-Swedish Chamber of Commerce itself, where Sebastian Norman Larsson had as task to make a more in-depth member survey to find out what companies and individual members want the Chamber to provide and focus on (to be reported to the Chamber). This, at the same time gave Jönköping University a chance to create awareness about their concept, with the opportunities for apprenticeships and students doing thesis work within companies. About 20 exchange students, and there are room for more, come to Bangkok from Jönköping each year, as part of the education Logistics & Management - Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering and Management. They are in demand at companies, certainly much thanks to this specific education, which can be applied on most businesses.

Roy Andersson, Jenny Bäckstrand and Head of Department Ingrid Wadskog visiting SAPA’s Executive Committee in Ho Chi Minh City, with the purpose to discuss thesis work and internships. Professor Roy Andersson, in charge of ‘Campus Southeast Asia’, gives the background and insights about this education and their expansion plans and outlook for Thailand and the region. Logistics & Management – industrial economy Roy is assistant professor at School of Engineering and did his Phd at Chalmers in Gothenburg and his area of research is within how to run companies, manage ups and downs and be resilient over time, and to study what factors make them survive. “And those companies who are resilient are those who have been around for a long time on the market.” He mentions a string of the familiar Swedish companies with global sales and operations. In Thailand he also teaches a course at AIT, as guest professor. The BA in Logistics & Management provides a profound knowledge of how industrial activity is built up, is led and can be developed. It combines business and technical understanding with an insight into human conditions, needs and limitations. Study is mainly focused on the industrial system, says the

description. Logistics manufacturing systems, operations management as well as quality and work sciences are central subject areas. In addition, knowledge of organization, business, change, project work and leadership is gained. “This engineering course is very broad,” says Roy. “It’s industrial economy and in that you have the soft part: company management, organizational etc. and the hardware: statistics and analysing data in order to lead and control.” “You have logistics everywhere; at hotels, storage, groceries management etc. So we have had internship in a variety of places – one has even been on a resort, and another at a bar business.” Gateway to Southeast-Asian growth market The campus in Southeast Asia is also telling for that this education fulfils a need among businesses. “We have requests from the industry – our customers are the society at large but especially Swedish industry. And we asked ourselves: what are their demands? Answer: that the students become more internationalized, in line

with what most companies are today.” “Then follows the question which area to focus on. And the destination must be attractive for students. So we thought of Thailand as being attractive for Swedes to travel to; it has a positive connotation. We assumed we would then get a strong interest among students wanting to go abroad, and also among teachers who can partake in education exchange.” Also, it’s about Southeast Asia as a huge market that the Swedish companies have known about for a long time; they know one must be established here. And most other universities, by comparison, are running after China, Roy points out. “And this area is more interesting, since the Southeast-Asia market is growing. This also gives a gateway; Swedish engineer students who have been here become more attractive on the job market back home after that, and they have been given a door-opener to this market.” “We communicate this opportunity in Sweden when we market our education to prospect students, making them aware that they can be in our focus region Southeast Asia, but also

Roy Andersson and Sten Dellby, with Thai alumni promoting Jönköping University’s education offers.

Roy Andersson visits Electrolux’s business management with Anrea Bet in the forefront, in Rayong, to discuss thesis work and internships other countries. So one can for instance do the internship here and then the thesis in another country.” There are partnerships with around 80 other countries. “We collaborate with around 50 companies today of which most are members of the TSCC, so we work tightly with the Chamber. In fact we have fewer students than placements, which is a pleasant situation.” But of course Jönköping University wants to cater to all companies wanting their students. It was though partaking in the TSCC ’Beyond Innovation’ expo, connecting to the 25 years anniversary

18

of the Chamber, that its representatives managed to build even more connections with companies here and a consequence was that for the spring of 2015 the demand for students ended up higher than the supply. Two extra students came from Sweden in April only to do their internship in Thailand. “We have three focus areas: internationalization, collaboration with companies, and research. Here we do two in one; internationalization and company collaboration. “Research is the next step. Our research manager is looking at if we could do something with the companies

and possibly together, and also with the universities, resulting in research exchange.” “In addition, we have discovered that certain companies may want to develop software, and we have software engineers too.” Aside Asian Institute of Technology they started collaborating with Rangsit University with the expanded concept in Jönköping regarding civil engineering and architect studies. “Maybe we can involve our whole university eventually, so it’ s also about expansion within the university, higher education, and expansion here.” “We have run this campus for five years and in total we have had 100 students.” “Four of these are working in Thailand, which shows that the programme is being successful.” Students go here for six months and study half time and do their exam work or internship half time. So from January until June they are at the company 2-3 days a week and study or are at the university 2-3 times a week. “The Second year students have the option to do internship and then study two courses at AIT or Rangsit University, at the same time as doing internship. And in year three students can come back to do thesis work, which is on a higher level. “Another success story is that the thesis work by two students at Volvo Trucks resulted in an improvement, with savings of around 30 – 40 per cent in one of their processes. We are talking millions of SEK in savings for the company! The students used the methods we had taught them, out in reality, and made a process more effective.” Southeast-Asia expansion Next up in the expansion plans is Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam. “A colleague of mine has been working there for two years, plus that we have a good collaboration with a university there – International University of Hoh Chi Min City.” Then the Southeast Asia Campus is due to spread it wings to Singapore, Malaysia and Jakarta etc. “We send about fives students to Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and the next step is to connect with the companies so we can do the same thing there. So in year 2017 we will launch there. And we hope to then be sending 50 students in total to these places per year.”

n September 2013 the last of total 12 Gripen C/D fighter aircraft was delivered from the Swedish defence material organisation (FMV) to the Royal Thai Airforce (RTAF) Wing 7 in Surat Thani, Thailand. Additional to the aircraft the contract included an extensive package with simulators, logistic support and education and training for the RTAF pilots and technicians. Sweden through Swedish Armed Forces, as subcontractors to FMV, also contributed

with a Gripen support group (included one field representative from SAAB) placed at Wing 7. A set up that has been proven fruitful both for RTAF and the Swedes involved. Captain Jesper Segerlund from the Swedish Air Force have been involved in this training; “Our main task has been to share our experience and give advice,” Captain Segerlund says. “We also actively support in the maintenance planning. It takes several

knowledge Thailand years to know how you best plan and prioritize, as well as to know how the maintenance chain works in Sweden. Different spare parts take different time to replace or repair.” Captain Segerlund has been a part of the support group for 8 months as a planning and logistic engineer. Wing Commander Chareon Watanasrimongkol, Wing 7, has appreciated the Swedish presence. “It is always nice to have the experts by your side when you work with a new system, especially a very complex one like Gripen,” Wing Commander Chareon Watanasrimongkol says. “The biggest challenge in managing this is probably to know when to stop while it feels like you are learning new things every day,” he adds. Approximately 80 persons from RTAF have during the years also conducted an almost one year long training course in Sweden at the Swedish Armed Forces Technical School (FMTS) in Halmstad combined with hands on practical experience out at the flotillas. One of them was Wing Commander Charoen Watanasrimongkol. “I had a great time there. It was such a fruitful learning experience both for work and for life. The most important knowledge I brought back with me to Thailand was of course the knowledge about the aircraft. Additionally, the insight in Swedish culture and attitude was eye-opening and really good,” says Chareon Watanasrimongkol. Petri Falk from Saab has been working with RTAF since the first aircraft was delivered, back then as a part of the support group and now as Senior Field Service Representative based in Sweden. “I’m proud to have been a part of introducing a new air defense system in a country outside Sweden,” Petri Falk says. “It feels great to see how well they perform today in the international exercises they conduct. You can really feel and hear from other that RTAF and Wing 7 also are proud over their new system. That gives me energy to continue my work and to further develop them.”

“The Swedish support group based here at Wing 7 has helped me a lot. I’ve not only received knowledge and experience from them, but also useful contacts to Sweden,” says Iyarat Wiputhanupong, Squadron leader and system engineer working with Gripen at Wing 7 here in a conversation with Petri Falk, from Saab and 1st Lt Lars Edfeldt from the Gripen support group.

Thailand has in two batches ordered an integrated air defense system from the Swedish government that additional to 12 Gripen C/D aircraft includes three Saab 340 aircraft (Two for surveillance and one for transport), tactical data links, RBS 15 and Sector Operations Centers.

hen the new steering committee signed the Chapter Agreement of the KTH Thailand Alumni Chaoter already signed by the KTH President - forty guests came to participate in the exclusive event at Centara Grand in Central World. The launch was held in conjunction with the 25 Years anniversary exhibition by the ThaiSwedish Chamber of Commerce (TSCC). This was preceded by (one year earlier in November 2013), a networking evening held together with TSCC, where KTH invited all alumni living in Thailand to attend at the Huntsmans Pub in Bangkok, where the KTH President also participated.


TSCC - Thai Swedish Chamber of Commerce

KTH Thailand Alumni Chapter’s steering committee signed the Chapter Agreement in October 2014.

This Chapter aims to promote KTH in the region and locally it offers networking opportunities for alumni living in Bangkok and the rest of Thailand. Activities are organised by the alumni in Bangkok as well as by the Alumni Office of KTH in Stockholm, Sweden. The most recent such event took place on 20 April 2015 when the Embassy of Sweden in Bangkok hosted a meet and greet with KTH and its KTH Bangkok alumni where about twenty new and alumni and students attended. This networking event allowed alumni to reconnect with each other and with KTH staff. Moreover, students going to Stockholm, in time for the autumn semester, got an opportunity to talk to the KTH alumni and exchange experiences, as well as getting some advice before moving to Sweden. Personal experiences from previous Thai students in Sweden were the best advice the newcomers could get. KTH representatives introduced the students to the university’s activities and answered questions from especially the new students regarding their future studies. Lalita Siriboon, President of KTH Thailand Alumni Chapter introduced the alumni chapter and her experience of studying at KTH. Although her current career has nothing related to the academic degree from KTH (an M.Sc. in Real

Alumni event Swedish Embassy Residence.

Estate Management from School of Architecture and Built Environment) studying at KTH, said Lalita, is her golden key to opening the door of opportunity that provides new ways of viewing life, and a better understanding of herself. “Furthermore, what better way t gain cultural insights, meet new friends and colleagues, and, at the same time, advance my academic and career goals than in a well-known university like KTH!” Lalita also presented what she is currently doing in her working time. “My recent work is building my own path to a successful life. Last three years I built a small business offering tailor made clothing service for men and women and mass production service for fashion brands both in Thailand and overseas.” “As an entrepreneur, the scope of responsibilities is endless but every step of this adventurous road is full of valuable experiences. Apart from working as a business owner, I am, since recently, also as a program team assistant for United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), Bangkok. At UNEP, my job is heavily involved in data gathering and document management. Before setting up my own business and joining UNEP, I worked as a strategic planning manager for top domestic retail developers, including CPN Plc. And Siam Piwat Co.,Ltd.”

She also worked as a researcher and consultant and as an analyst for international firms. ”Studying at KTH has been an eyeopening experience as it has enriched my mind, pushed me to venture beyond my typical comfort zone, and fostered a curiosity for knowledge and the world itself,” was her conclusion she gave about the KTH studies. For Thai students new to Sweden Lalita said that the KTH Alumni chapter in Thailand give advice about life in Stockholm and share their wonderful experiences at KTH with the prospective KTH students. “Moreover, if requested, we promptly help them prepare well for their journey to the exciting opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.” For the Thailand chapter activities she said that the alumni chapter serves to bring the spirit of KTH to Thailand. For the sake of a stronger alumni network, the chapter offers opportunities for KTH alumni living in Thailand to connect through social, intellectual and community events. At least two more events will be held during 2015.

At Tetra Pak,Innovation Creates Value: World’s first fully renewable package available globally after successful introduction

The 100% renewable package can be identified by the words “Tetra Rex® Bio-based” printed on the gable of the package.

At Tetra Pak, Innovation Creates Value:

World’s first fully renewable package available globally after successful introduction

F

ollowing its successful introduction with Finnish dairy Valio, the world’s first fully renewable package, Tetra Rex® Bio-based, is now being rolled out to Tetra Pak customers worldwide. The package, Tetra Rex® Biobased, is manufactured solely from a combination of plastics derived from plants and paperboard. It marks a world first, and signals an important milestone in Tetra Pak’s long-stated commitment to drive ever-stronger environmental performance across all parts of its portfolio and operations. “Valio is committed to increasing

the share of renewable resources in its packaging material. We share a common vision of innovation and environmental responsibility with Tetra Pak and we are proud to be the first in the world to make our products available in a fully renewable carton package,” says Elli Siltala, Marketing Director at Valio. In Tetra Rex Bio-based cartons, the low density polyethylene used to create the laminate film for the packaging material and the neck of the opening, together with the high density polyethylene used for the cap, are all derived from sugar cane. These plastics, like the Forest Stewardship CouncilTM (FSCTM) certified paperboard, are

traceable to their origins. Valio has been selling its Valio Eila® brand of lactose free semi-skimmed milk drink in Tetra Rex Bio-based for the past three months and now plans to use the fully renewable package for some other products in their range. At the same time, the company has also decided to use Tetra Pak’s 100% bio based closures for all their gable-top packages. Tetra Rex Bio-based recently scooped a Gold Award at the Pro2Pac Excellence Awards in the UK for being the world’s first carton made entirely from plant-based, renewable packaging materials.

Swedish consumer retail start-up Ash overcomes hurdles

Swedish consum start-up Ash overcomes By Joakim Persson

R

eaders may not necessarily know of Coloud, Molami, TRIWA and Urbanears but these are all Swedish brands available to purchase on the market in Thailand, within so called functional fashion accessories - eyewear, headphones and watches. And they have been brought into Thailand and are being promoted here by a Swedishowned company called Ash (an acronym for the first letter in the first name of the trio of Swedes who started it). This marketing, distribution and retail company set up from scratch in Thailand (in 2009) shares insights from the retail consumer market, evidently including the need to have a strong focus, staying one’s course and quite a big chunk of sensitivity combined with an ounce of luck to gain entrance, plus of course hard work to accomplish the door-openers needed. It is safe to say that Ash has made it and survived some really tough times since the start.

26

www.swecham.com

Breaking through during hard times in Thailand, Ash is on course for continued growth during 2015, having achieved a big milestone in 2012 when the first Ash retail store opened its doors. Having products on the shelves in 500+ stores/ locations in Singapore and Thailand is another achievement. Outgoing Managing Director Hermine Bonde (who moved to Norway to join her husband this May), recounts the story so far. In the beginning… It started with that Triwa (a Stockholmbased company who set out to TRansform the Industry of Watches) was looking for a distributor in S-E Asia for its brand. “They contacted entrepreneur Adam Returskiold [previously behind the development Scandinavian Thai Homes in Hua Hin], since he had lived for a long time in Thailand and knew the market well), who in turned contacted Sebastian

(who runs LifestyleAsia.com) who knew the PR side of things. And he contacted me in Australia,” begins Hermine Bonde, at their downtown Bangkok head office. “I worked for a marketing agency with market building of brands and brand strategies for distributors.” “We decided to set up the company and Adam and Sebastian already had their own companies so they did not have the time for this really. So I moved here and we started in Singapore, as Thailand was a bit problematic around 2010.” They started on a small scale with Hermine as the only employee, who set out knocking doors and building a network, since she started out from scratch in the area. “I knew no one here, so I went out to meet a lot of people.” “We thought then that we would create alliances with hotels and sell to visitors coming here, already familiar with the brand.”


TSCC - Thai Swedish Chamber of Commerce

point for all western brands.” “The Swedish brand owners like very much to work with Swedes over here in Thailand, whom they feel they can communicate directly with and understand their brand and represent it in a worthy way.“ “I think it has been pretty easy to find brands to work with - it is the largest asset in the company being able to find the best brands. And that has to do with that everyone in our team understanding the value in the Asian market.”

mer retail hurdles But this initial plan to sell via hotel boutique shops in Thailand turned out to be a dead end in terms of selling. “Luckily I had networked outside Thailand, and approached Club 21, a distributor and multi-brand shop operator. Of the retail shops I visited most were surprisingly positive, and I managed to get TRIWA into many attractive places, including high-profile shops such as Club 21, so we got relatively broad exposure at an early stage - in 2010.” “We could get our watches, which cost between 5 - 10 000 baht, into shops where nothing else cost less than 40 000 baht. So we lifted the brand a lot. And those consuming in those shops had no problems buying something accidentally for 5-10 00 baht.” This turned into Ash’s strategy: to focus the brands on design and not on price point. Their concept is to always be the most affordable in the shops where they are represented.

But getting into such a recognised retail chain was clearly a challenge. “That’s where my networking turned out to be crucial. They take in products based on the brand and I believe they thought it was a bit bold by me coming from nowhere and knocking doors. They were all quite helpful and wanted to give me a chance,” says Hermine as she analyses how they somewhat sidestepped their policy. “I managed to build a personal connection with their purchaser, enabling them to agree to it. And we are still working with them today.” When Ash started representing Triwa this was also built on relationship entirely, in fact. “Five years ago they worked with us only because they like us as people; we had no network at all! They staked on our relationship, but now we have to show that we also have the distribution network. The fact that we are Europeans, Swedes, is still a selling

Adding more brands With Triwa on board Ash started bringing in more brands, to broaden its portfolio. And that’s when they brought in headphones from Zound Industries Urbanears and Marshall in particular. ”We partnered with Copperwired’s iStudio - an apple premium retailer - from then on it was full force.” The colourful Urbanears headphones can be found at iStudios. “We entered with products that were European, with strong brands and really good design and solid quality but that the growing middle-income market could afford to buy. And I think that’s the reason behind the break-through; it was the first time they could enter into iStudios and buy an affordable and qualitative product, what was at the same time this trend with fashion headphones. Sure, it helped that everyone was using headphones for their iPhone; that’s what pushes the market. But it has also become a trend that one should have headphones and preferably colourful ones.” In addition Ash established their own shop concept in order to be able to sell their products from the portfolio - in the fashion segment. IN Thailand most brands are sold in single-brand stores. “When it comes to so called trade channels, such as watch shops, these buy from distributors, but it’s very hard to build a brand within those channels, and if you don’t have a brand you won’t get a chance to enter those channels.” Ash first set up their shops as shopin-shops, the majority within department stores. “But we have one own shop in Mega Bangna and one in Siam Discovery.” Outside the fashion bracket Ash has also convinced the prestigious brand Sennheiser to do the distribution, and branding, of their headphones on the Thailand market, which Hermine calls a “feather in the hat”.

Swedish consumer retail start-up Ash overcomes hurdles

“Sennheiser differs a bit since it is a very functional product. Even if they have fashion-oriented products it is not what distinguishes them on the market.” “The way we got that brand was that you can no long sell products only based on functionality. You must have a cooler brand appealing to consumers on more than just functionality. They had really failed on that in Thailand. We are new distributors for them and we are really working on building their brand here in Thailand.” Headphones has become a fashion accessory, a way to express oneself based on what type of headphones one has, explains Hermine. They way Ash got Sennheisier was by approaching them and pointing out weaknesses and how this could be rectified and things done better, and crucially - how Ash would do it and why the brand should work with them. Brands with great design and affordable price Through a selective process Ash has partnered up with brands that have a strong and inspirational group of people behind them. Ash looks for great design and high quality, combined with an affordable price tag. All brands have a unique story to tell and we take our job to communicate it very seriously. As a result of being very selective about what brands Ash has been able to grow its portfolio with unique brands that all have their own character and

28

www.swecham.com

story attached to them. “We don’t know any brand today that we would like to work with and that we are not already working with. We’re being contacted very frequently by brands requesting to work with us. And we are constantly looking at and communicating with new brands that fit into the segments of importance to us.” In Thailand a brand’s products must fulfil certain criteria: Be very price-worthy in order to work on the Thai market, and must be good design and an innovative concept. “It cannot be a copycat, and must of course fill a vacuum for that product on the market. We perform quite a detailed market analysis for each brand. And 19 out of 20 we feel it is not a fit. We spend so much time on these brands so we don’t want to stake on a brand that we are not one hundred per cent sure will work and tick all the points.” And keeping the brands also requires a strategy. “One spends a lot of time on brand-building because without that you cannot get them into the stores. You work on 1-year contracts, and can loose it from one year to the next. And it happens that the brand owner enters and takes over your market if the brand grows too much.” “What we do, in ensuring to keep the brands, is to work very tight with our suppliers, and having very good relationships.” “Our aim is always to build longevity for the brands we work with. This is

accomplished by an all-encompassing marketing strategy in which we strive to deliver the best value to our customers, brand owners and retail partners.” Besides that the alternative for western brands would typically be a Thai distributor. “And that is a different ballgame. So we handle that part for them - they don’t need to know the Asian market in-house in order to sell on it. They can work with us as Swedes, like any other Europeans, that are present in Asia.” The threat is constant: “Our brands are being contacted all the time by other distributors wanting to take over from us. It’s a tough market and then the relations are crucial!” As advice for others Hermine says: “Brands don’t need to know the market. But Thailand, for instance, is very designoriented. A minimalistic, and simple brand may sell well in Europe, but isn’t of interest to Thais; they want to have a strong fashion or design aspect here.” Next up for Ash during 2015 is to try and enter with more single brand shops, with much more focus on each brand. “We’ve started that - and will launch twelve shop-in-shops with Power Buy this year, where we have separate boutiques for Sennheiser, Marshall etc. We are also looking to open some kiosks.”

One Rembrandt... two Swedes

David Nilsson

Eric Hallin

One Rembrandt... two Swedes You have probably met Mr. Eric Hallin, GM at Hotel Rembrandt on Sukhumvit Soi 18 and his assistant David Nilsson? These two busy Swedes are behind most of our Scandinavian events in Bangkok. We all might think we know them, but do we really? Of course we meet them as efficient businessmen, but how are they in private, what are their dreams and goals? By Agneta Bekassy / Photos by Daniel Herron

I

sat down to talk to David one day and asked him to tell me more about himself and this is his story; David saw the first daylight in a small village called Ramkvilla, located in Smaland, Sweden. He went to school there and later on to “gymnasium” (high school) in the little bigger place Vetlanda. After having finished school, he joined the Military Service in Karlskrona (known for its liqueur Flaggpunsch).

34

www.swecham.com

After having served his country, he decided to move to the capital Stockholm and stayed there for 5 years. He started to work at Mc Donald’s and also took a job at a pawn shop (we have many of these shops in Sweden). One day he had had enough and the longing for travelling hit him. In 2006, he ventured out together with a friend to explore Asia. He visited Vietnam, Thailand and a few more countries and was away for a month. He really liked

and enjoyed Vietnam, he told me. He went back to Stockholm with a lot of new impressions and experiences in the luggage; decided to take 1 year off and already in 2008 he was back in Asia and Thailand. He was smart to realize, that when living in Thailand, it’s an advantage to speak Thai, so he went to school and picked up the Thai language during a year. Over the next few years he travelled back and forth between Sweden and Asia, but in year 2012, he was ready to settle in Thailand. He started to study at a university in Bangkok and chose Tourism and Management. As if studying wasn’t enough, he opened up his own hostel close to Suvarnabumi Airport. He worked on that for almost a year, until in March 2013 he decided to sell. In the meantime he had met another young Swede, Erik Lange, who was employed at Rembrandt Hotel and when Eric got a new job, David took on Eric’s old position. This was 2013 and David started as a Front Office Trainee Manager at Rembrandt. This is where the other Swede at Rembrandt, Eric Hallin enters this story.


TSCC - Thai Swedish Chamber of Commerce It didn’t take long for Eric Hallin to see David Nilsson’s potential, so he asked David to help him organizing the Scandinavian events. Only 6 month later, David was promoted to F & B manager. I asked David what his first impression of his manager Eric was, and he answered: “Eric was very quiet during the interview, he didn’t say much. But, to my surprise, he offered me a beer and had one himself!” Eric Hallin seems to have a talent at handling people. He has kept the same staff year after year and all of them seem to be happy. David also points out that, through his job at Rembrandt, he has got a huge network and he has become a veteran in organizing events like Midsummer parties, Christmas and Easter dinners and last but not least, The “Yellow Pea soup evenings”. These suppers take place once a month for only men and once a month nowadays also for us women. If you haven’t attended yet, go for it. Every second Thursday at 7 pm for the ladies and every third Thursday same time, for the men. The dinners take place in the Presidential Suite, which has a cozy home feeling. For a short time, David went to work at Grand Sukhumvit Hotel, but remained chef for the Scandinavian events at Rembrandt. I asked him why he left his new challenge at Grand Sukhumvit and he told me it was far too many weekends to work and if you have a girlfriend and are in love, you at least need some free weekends. Suppose we all agree to that. David lives in a distance relationship with his Thai girlfriend. She is a bank employee and comes from North/East of Thailand (Isaan) almost 7 hours by bus from Bangkok. Now I had to ask the question, “so, when are you going to get married?” I think I saw David blush just a little. He said,” well, we might marry in the future”. I was also curious to hear if it was love at first sight and he quickly replied, “from my side YES”. Today David has started studying again and his future dream is to own his own little hotel, kind of Boutique Hotel somewhere in the north of Thailand. He prefers the mountains to the sea. I am happy to tell you, that we still, for some time, will see David at Rembrandt and his latest project is launching a Wednesday BBQ dinner by the pool. He is a guy with a bright future, a big smile and lots of ideas. Good luck to you David!

Eric Hallin Catching Eric Hallin for a chat was more difficult than making an appointment with David. Eric seems to be on the run all the time, trying to catch him is like trying to catch the wind. Eric is addicted to his new IPhone 6+. I think we all know. Have you ever seen him without his mobile? I haven’t… You see him walking around at his hotel, mostly with a big smile, saying a friendly word on his way both to guests and staff. I can also tell he is a big fan of Champagne and red wine and he enjoys good food. He also just loves to travel and does it a lot. One-day Switzerland, next Austria then the US. I think he is clever to combine business trips with some private happenings. He still can ski, a wonder after all his years in Thailand and I know, from experience, that he is a good dancer when he wants to. Eric was born in Stockholm and went to school in Sweden, Greece, Uganda, Tanzania and Zambia. He went to college in France, Sweden and Malawi, quite unbelievable. I asked when he decided to become a Hotelier and he said already in early seventies. He wanted to go to the famous Hotel School in Lausanne (Switzerland) but at that time there was a waiting list of 6 years so he forgot about that school, instead he started to work as Tour Operator for Jambo Tours Scandinavia and also visited different hotel schools. His first job, after having finished his exams in Hotel/Management, was just for Jambo Tours and due to this company he happened to settle in Thailand as a Far East Manager. Since then Eric has had plenty of employments e.g. Indra Regent, Rose Garden Hotel, Sampra Riverside Hotel, Dusit Thani Hotels & Resorts, Princess Hotels & Resorts, Westin Hotels/Starwood in Chiangmai and later Chiangrai, White Sands Resort &

Spa Lux in the Maldives, Six Senses Hideaway, Samui and today Rembrandt Hotel. An amazing CV. I asked him how he is as a boss and he quickly answered “leading by example” and he is motivating his staff by giving them room to make decisions to service the guests. What are you mainly looking for during an employment interview I also asked and Eric answered” attitude”. I was also curious to know about Eric’s goals and he said, “run a good hotel to the satisfaction of guests, coworkers and owner” (and he certainly does). Do you have any time for hobbies and sports I also had to ask, and the answeres was: ”Sabering Champagne! And this year I want to learn how to play golf”. What would be the most perfect dinner combination for you I wanted to know and Eric’s answer was, “Good, well prepared food, Champagne and a good red wine and last but not least, nice and interesting company”. When he takes his family out for dinner, they go to various restaurants, Japanese, European, and Thai etc. Eric is married to a Thai woman and has two children, a daughter and a son, 19 and 21 years old. A short hile ago he lost his first-born son, from a previous marriage. His had followed in Eric’s footsteps and was Hotelier at the ”Wishing Tree” in Khonkaen, a hotel belonging to the Singha Beer family. I also wanted to find out in which other country, except Thailand, Eric would like to work and he immediately answered “Japan”. One of the last questions: When you retire, what will you do? He looked a bit surprised by this question and said “me? retire? I’m much too young to think about it”. Good to know that we will still see him managing Rembrandt for the next many years. Very last question: If you would have one wish free, what would it be? “I want my children to grow up to be good individuals”. I thanked Eric for taking his time to answer my curious questions. Now we know a bit more about this excellent man, father, GM and to many of us, good friend.

AD Asia Consulting on the Rise within Real Estate

AD Asia

Consulting on the Rise within Real Estate By Joakim Persson

W

ith a background in interior design and furniture manufacturing, exporting to the European market (through the Hong Kong-based AD Asia Group) the new TSCC corporate member AD Asia Consulting has established itself on the Thailand real estate and is out to make its mark as a ‘boutique’, one stop consultancy and property developer as well as real estate investment agent. AD Asia provides clients turnkey solutions since 2011, and is stepping up its involvement based on their and their clients’ belief in the market, and based on more requests for design and construction of property developments. The company has been present in Thailand for 15 years, originally as manufacturers and constructors and as service providers in architectural/ interior design and financial investment solutions. Currently they are, within construction, occupied with finalising Frigel Asia Pacific’s factory and building some 4-5 restaurants and bar projects

in Bangkok before the end of this year, both concerning interior and construction management. Looking ahead AD Asia will launch their real estate investment club, together with the residential real estate service: AD Asia Real Estate section. Always thinking one step ahead, Mr.Andrea Docemascolo, AD Asia’s CEO (from Rome, Italy), says that launching an Investment Club will drive both future business success and expansion. These investors will be offered a Real Estate Investment Trust fund (REIT) in 2015, aimed at real estate investors from worldwide, including retirement residential buyers. One of the ways for their customers to stay up to do date will be the new ‘Gateway to ASEAN’ blog opening under AD Asia Consulting, with discussions and information about the latest market views. AD Asia’s presence in Thailand builds on a foundation of the affiliated group of companies and developed projects; with the new residential real estate section as key in their

services, explains Janne Takala (Sales & Marketing Director.) Janne says that they will disclose within this year a new mixed-use hotel project for Koh Lanta. This island south of Krabi is known in particular for its Scandinavian community and their ‘Thaim-out’ concept there, the escape from the typical rat race western lifestyle to something else, a more ‘slow life’ style of living.
