The DLG’s (German Agricultural Society) subsidiary DLG Thai, located in Bangkok, will operate under the name DLG Asia Pacific, effective immediately.
The new name more accurately reflects the regional focus of the Thailand-based subsidiary and forms part of DLG’s growing international focus on prospective agricultural and food markets. Under its new name, DLG Asia Pacific will be responsible for managing all DLG and partner projects in the region.
“The change of name to DLG Asia Pacific is another important step in DLG’s internationalization strategy,” said Jens Kremer, managing director of DLG International.
“With DLG Asia Pacific, we are represented with a strong team geographically close to the important markets of the future. This means the company can react quickly to developments in the region and not only position our events appropriately in the markets, in line with demand, but also develop new formats quickly and successfully,” he added.
Located in Bangkok and operating in Thailand and neighboring countries, DLG’s subsidiary was set up in 2021 in response to local demand, notably from agricultural ministries, for DLG’s core competencies in professional agricultural knowledge platforms.
“Bangkok continues to be the ideal location for DLG’s subsidiary DLG Asia Pacific. The central position offers optimal conditions as one of the region’s central business hubs for networking here, on the ground, as well as in other neighboring countries, with organizations and partners and jointly launching new projects,” said Katharina Staske, managing director of DLG Asia Pacific. “We have identified enormous potential in the agricultural sector in this region and have prepared firm plans to contribute to sustainable development in local agriculture, through our know-how and flexible, tailored concepts,” she added.
