From research conducted since 2003 up to the present, concrete findings indicate that the Sustainable Economy principles offer a boost to small-scale business, such as Nithi Foods Co., Ltd. in Chiang Mai, as well as large-scale conglomerate like the Siam Cement Public Company Limited, and can create sustainable growth, fair profit-making and a competitive advantage with multinational corporations."
Sufficiency thinking book launch
On May 31 2016, ISL’s new book, Sufficiency Thinking, on the Thai Sufficiency Economy Philosophy (SEP), was launched at the start of ISL’s 11th International Symposium on Sustainable Leadership, held in Bangkok, Thailand.
The launch was a very successful, exciting and well-attended event, with a welcome speech from Dr. Chirayu Na Ayuthaya, Chairman of the Thailand Sustainable Development Foundation followed by keynote speeches from His Excellency Don Pramudwinai, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Thailand, and Mr. Harald Link, Chairman of the B.Grimm group whose engaging talk covered how the B. Grimm group manage business with compassion.
Later in the day there were panel sessions involving the chapter authors and practitioners on four broad topics related to the SEP – health, education, agriculture and community, and business.
