The German Asia-Pacific Association investment group, having visited northern Thailand during the first week of December 2003, was very impressed with the quality and the professionalism they experienced during their introduction tour, with organizers having arranged for a variety of foreign investors to meet with the investigating representatives.

The group after lunch, hosted by Bluechips Microhouse.

After an impressive seminar at the Royal Princess Chiang Mai, the delegates visited manufacturers of food processing products, a jewelry manufacturer, the northern industrial estate of Lamphun, manufacturers of electronic parts, EGAT in Lampang, and the Bluechips Microhouse company.

Dr. Jur. Ulrich Salzer, one of the senior advisors said he felt very positive and optimistic about investment in the Asia Pacific region. The group of delegates met with the owners of Bluechips Microhouse, a company producing LCD modules, 100 percent German owned, and promoted by the BOI.

A tour through the manufacturing company showed clearly the dedication of Thomas and Sabine Zimpfer, of Bluechips Microhouse, put behind production and quality control.

A lunch was hosted by Bluechips Microhouse, and an opportunity to get first hand information was the end of a two day visit to Northern Thailand.
