Bridgestone CEO accepts Thai investment advisor position
The chief executive officer and chairman of the board at Bridgestone Corporation, Masaaki Tsuya, has been appointed honorary investment advisor to the Thailand Board of Investment (BOI). The role was established last month with the purpose of assisting the BOI in promoting Thailand as an attractive investment destination both in Southeast Asia and throughout the world.
After receiving the certificate of appointment from Thailand’s deputy prime minister, Dr Somkid Jatusripitak, Tsuya said: “I am very honoured and privileged to be appointed as honorary investment advisor of the BOI. Bridgestone has been doing business in Thailand for around half a century. Our business in Thailand now spans across a wide range of areas, from R&D, testing, manufacturing, sales & marketing and equipment of tyres, to the sales and marketing of diversified products and raw materials.
“Taking this opportunity, on behalf of Bridgestone, I would like to express our wholehearted appreciation to all our stakeholders in Thailand, including, but not limited to, government officers, community members, various business partners, end-users, suppliers, employees, and friends. With the help and support of all these people, we would like to continue to improve the prosperity of our operations in Thailand.”
