The Thai-Sri Lanka Chamber of Commerce was formed in July 2003 as a result of a much felt need by the Sri Lankan business community in Thailand and the Sri Lanka Embassy in Thailand to establish a formal institution to help increase trade co-operation between Thailand and Sri Lanka.
The early groundwork and the preparation of the constitution were undertaken by the Sri Lanka Embassy in Thailand. Without the guidance of the Sri Lanka Embassy and support from trade and government institutions in Thailand the realization of the Chamber would not have been possible.
The Thai-Sri Lanka Chamber of Commerce will be a conduit to developing stronger business links between the two countries and will support its members in developing business in both Thailand and Sri Lanka.
The Chamber currently consists of nearly twenty members and its membership continues to grow. The membership consists of both Sri Lankans doing business in Thailand and Thai companies with business interest with Sri Lanka.

The objectives of the Chamber are as follows

  • To promote and develop economic relations between Thailand and Sri Lanka.
  • To co-operate with each country’s authorities to develop trade, industry, investment and economic activities.
  • To provide advice, ideas, suggestions for the development of the economic and trade co-operation between the countries.
  • To collect and disseminate information related to trade and economic activities of both countries.
  • To organize such events necessary for the promotion of trade and economic co-operation.
  • To promote unity among businessmen of both countries.
  • To do other business prescribed by the law as the duty of Chamber of Commerce but not contrary to the Chamber of Commerce Act of B. E. 2509(1966).
  • To exclude politics.
