Over the past year, the Thai government has promulgated a number of laws and regulations aimed at equipping companies with the necessary tools to conduct business in an increasingly technology-centric world. Among others, this has included revised criteria for e-signatures, eased restrictions on electronic board and shareholder meetings, and the introduction of the country’s first unified data privacy legislation. These legal developments will prove to be even more important in the post-COVID world as companies continue to shift their business structures to allow partially or fully remote operations.
To help Thai companies understand these developments, Tilleke & Gibbins and the Thai Listed Companies Association (TLCA) are pairing up to cohost a webinar entitled “The Role of Technology in the New Normal for Thai Businesses,” presented by Charuwan Charoonchitsathian and Nopparat Lalitkomon, counsel and attorney-at-law respectively in Tilleke & Gibbins’ Bangkok office. During the session they will discuss the legality and use of e-signatures in Thai business operations, regulations for electronic board and shareholder meetings for Thai companies, and the government’s recent decision to postpone enforcement of certain sections of the Personal Data Privacy Act until next year.
The webinar will be broadcast live on June 25, 2020, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. If you’re interested in attending this highly-anticipated session, which will be conducted in Thai, please register your interest by sending an email to [email protected].
