This Sunday, Oregon Business leaves Oregon. And the country.


We’re jetting off to Bangkok, Thailand for a week.

We’ll accompany Business Oregon, Prosper Portland and eight small renewable energy companies on an annual trade mission. We’ll watch as they seek to develop relationships with Thai leaders and represent the state at ASEAN sustainable energy week, one of the largest renewable energy conferences in Southeast Asia.

Thailand is accelerating clean tech, a strong suit for Oregon. Sustainable development is a cornerstone of the ambitious “Thailand 4.0” plan the military announced in 2016. The country’s electric vehicle market is booming.

The trade mission will seek out opportunities in this sector, and insights for Oregon.
