About the 5th CFO Innovation Thailand Forum 2019
The Thai economy is projected to grow at 3.8% in 2019 and 3.9% in 2020, down from 4.3% in 2018, according to the World Bank's Thailand Economic Monitor.
Export and tourism, the growth drivers in 2018, have slowed down under the weight of uncertainties - an upcoming general election, elevated trade tensions, the slowing regional economic outlooks.
But opportunities abound amidst uncertainties.
While the short-term seemingly poses many challenges, Thailand’s long-term economic prospects have proved to be resilient with strengthening domestic demand, stemming from low inflation and accommodative monetary policy. The Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) has also attracted over US$9.3 billion in promised FDI, which will drive the country closer to its realization of the Thailand 4.0 national strategy.
Join us at the 5th CFO Innovation Thailand Forum 2019 as we discuss what it takes to become an agile CFO that excel in navigating changing business landscapes, spotting new opportunities and driving competitiveness.

Currency markets have seen numerous crises in the last 5 years, including sizable exchange rate movements for a few of the major global currencies. With other concerning, sudden macroeconomic developments such as the U.S.-China trade war, companies with a global outlook must enact and maintain a stringent FX risk strategy.
It is estimated that 80% of Fortune 500 companies have implemented some type of shared services model to deliver better economies of scale. There are cost and efficiency benefits in such a move - but also significant challenges. How can the Thailand enterprises integrate the model effectively?
Today’s technology, cloud, and IoT-driven world is continually generating a wealth of data, creating both opportunity and challenge for those tasked with deciphering and analyzing it. CFOs in particular are facing increased pressure to connect the dots between multiple data streams to identify patterns that will optimize a company’s growth and align its costs with its strategy.
Sustainability, which encompasses environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues, is increasingly positioned at the top of board agendas. By fostering more proactive identification, measurement, and disclosure of ESG risks, CFOs can provide critical insight into how the company is protecting value, and in turn, drive stakeholders' confidence.
