Dear Valued Members,
We have the pleasure to remind you of the upcoming ECCIL Annual Meeting (General Assembly) which will take place on March 29th at 5.30 pm at the Settha Palace, Vientiane, which will be followed by a Lao-Europe Business Networking Event from 7.00 to 9.30 pm. The registration will be opened in a few days.
This year will also see the election of a new Executive Committee, a committee that will lead the Chamber for the coming two years. The Chamber is in a period of transition, from having been supported and partly financed by the EU, to a Chamber that must be financially viable through its own means. It’s an exciting period and a period that requires commitment and engagement by all Executive Committee members.
During the EAM, amongst many things, one item of the agenda will be approving the Articles of Association with additions proposed by the Lao National Chamber of Commerce, on behalf of the government,
Kindly find here the ECCIL Articles of Associations with an additional paragraph on Rights and Duties of the Chamber. Please note that only one paragraph has been added that strengthens the Chamber’s right to officially represent you and Make Your Voice heard in negotiations and other events organized by the Government. It is Article 4 which has been highlighted in yellow to facilitate your reading.
