Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to Grace the 11th Asian Forum on Corporate Social Responsibility

Bangkok, Oct 12, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - After ten successful runs in six of Southeast Asia's major cities -- Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh, Bangkok and Singapore -- the Asian Forum on Corporate Social Responsibility (AFCSR) once again returns to Thailand to hold the 11th AFCSR at the Shangri-La Hotel in Bangkok.

On October 25 and 26, more than 50 CSR experts from various industries will converge at the conference, which will be concluded by the Asian CSR Awards gala dinner and awarding ceremonies. Her Excellency Yingluck Shinawatra, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Thailand will be the guest of honor and will be presenting the awards to organizations on the evening of October 26, 2012.

Earlier this year, Prime Minister Shinawatra confirmed her government's commitment to working with the private sector in building a society of good governance and social responsibility, with plans to support health and wellness, tourism and education in the region.

This dovetails with many Thai companies represented in the conference who have a strong CSR strategy; some of whom are Bangkok Bank, Double A (1991) PCL, Mitr Phol Sugar Corp., and The Siam Cement PCL.

Since 2003, the Asian CSR Awards Program has been recognizing and honoring Asian companies for embodying the principles of corporate responsibility in their business philosophy and operations. The awards seek to identify, honor, and provide role models of best practices for other companies. It is presented by the Asian Institute of Management - Ramon V. del Rosario, Sr. Center for Corporate Social Responsibility (AIM-RVR) and Intel Corporation.

This year's Asian CSR Awards saw the submission of more than 300 programs from 88 companies and 13 countries. Awards will be given in the focus areas of Value Chain Management, Governance and Society, Labor and Employee Engagement, and Product Responsibility and Consumer Rights. The Intel-AIM Corporate Responsibility Award (IACRA) will be given to the company that has taken a fully-embedded approach to corporate social responsibility across all the four focus areas and has implemented projects that have a significant impact and are sustainable in all appropriate areas of operations. The winners will be announced on October 26 at the awarding ceremonies at the Shangri-La Hotel.
