Bangkok--31 May--Ogilvy Public Relations

Global Alliance Partners (GAP), an international network of regulated financial services companies, professional investors, local corporate clients and international brokers focusing on the mid-capital market, holds its bi-annual conference on 30-31 May 2019 at Le Bua Hotel at State Tower in Bangkok, Thailand.

Host partner, Country Group Securities (CGS), will bring topics such as technological disruption and new geo-political economy to discussions among local corporate clients and professional investors from around the world.

Dr. Veeraphat Phetcharakupt, Chief Executive Officer of Country Group Securities Plc, revealed, "CGS is delighted to host the GAP Conference at this time when we are witnessing several industries in Thailand transitioning through challenges of technology disruption and new geo-political economy.

"We have brought together several clients from various sectors, such as financial services, energy, consumer goods, as well as health and wellness, to connect them to the world market through representatives of several global companies under GAP," said the CEO of CGS, "This is in line with CGS's business philosophy to harness professional and commercial relationships and grow with them. With Global Alliance Partners to help facilitate smooth international access, we are committed to offering our clients a gateway into an ever-evolving market landscape and opportunities to build long-term ties to grow wealth."

Country Group Securities, which has partnered with the network since 2017, recognizes how its association with GAP not only heightens business interactions and strengthens partnerships, but also helps prepare its clients for where the global market is headed next.

Dr. Veeraphat expressed, "Being a GAP member has broadened our perspective and introduced us to different ways of doing business with knowledge required for wealth and fund management, broking, and investment banking, among other services. Aside from boosting each client's deals and capabilities, Global Alliance Partners helps foster a strong corporate community that mutually enriches the global business experience of those involved. In the next years, CGS's clients may expect more actionable deals as a result of this conference."

Chairman and Executive Director of Global Alliance Partners (GAP), Mr. Bernard Pouliot, commented, "We are pleased to meet in Bangkok for this GAP Conference as we are looking forward to increasing cross-border activities in Thailand, whose economy has a lot of opportunities to grow. GAP has been established to find like-minded parties that need international exposure while furthering each other's business deals anywhere in the world. Our network consists of regulated financial services companies including investment banks, securities brokers, research houses, financial advisors, and wealth and fund managers, that focus on the mid-capital market. We provide our client base with local service and expertise coupled with international reach and access to private equity, corporate fund raising, stock broking, fund management, cross-border research, and placement capabilities."

He continued, "Held bi-annually, the GAP conferences have been intended to bring together the best minds, thus providing a platform for thought leadership, business lead sharing, and transactional activities. With GAP, it is quicker and easier to achieve a response on whether a business opportunity is possible anywhere globally as we constantly facilitate partners to interact and collaborate with the key decision makers within all member firms."

In this age of financial innovation, companies in Thailand are accelerating their capabilities into the digital future with influences from technological disruption and new geo-political economy. According to Dr. Narongchai Akrasanee, Chairman of the Board of Directors, MFC Asset Management Plc, who is the keynote speaker under the topic "Thai Economy in Transition: Meeting the Challenges of Disruptive Technologies and New Geo-Political Economy" at the GAP Conference in Bangkok, Thailand's economy is expected to expand further in the next years due to the introduction and promotion of digital economy, Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), the geo-political economy of ASEAN, relations with Japan and China, as well as inward and outward foreign investment.

Dr. Narongchai explained, "Since the globalization trend is being driven by powerful countries, such as the United States, China and Japan, it is important for local corporates in Thailand to enhance their regional and international cooperation in economic and social areas. Thai business sectors should continue to make themselves appealing for investment while leveraging the country's open economy, strong services and manufacturing sector, as well as Asian and western alliance to achieve higher results."

"Such network as GAP has proven pivotal for companies aiming to penetrate rising economic powerhouses because it allows them to find overseas parties which see Thailand highly favorable for investments. Similarly, there are great names abroad that also need a presence in Asia. This is a great time for companies to be more competitive and push the boundaries in order to gain a broader perspective and an international approach in enriching their business," added Dr. Narongchai.

Tommy Taechaubol, CEO of Country Group Holdings, the holding company of Country Group Securities, is also excited for the GAP Conference. "Country Group Holdings acknowledges that CGS's partnership with GAP enables the company to enhance its position in the global market and further bolster its international stature," said the CEO of Country Group Holdings, "Marketing under the GAP banner is very powerful as it reflects CGS's capabilities to help its clients overcome both domestic and international challenges. We expect that the size and reach of our subsidiary will further increase in the years to come as we draw new partners through the network"

The GAP conferences, which have been hosted around the globe since 2008, are conducted over two days. The first day is the Internal Meeting, where GAP members provide updates on the state of their markets and current business offerings. The second day is an Investment Forum hosted by a GAP Member Firm with corporate issuers presenting investment propositions and business projects to the network.
