泰国中华总商会创立于前清宣统二年(一九一O年),迄今已有一百年历史。在历届会董的共同努力下,商会的规模不断发展壮大。时至今日,已发展成为泰华社会最具影响力的华人社团。商会明确规定其宗旨为:团结侨众,互相协助,为广大华人华侨谋取福祉,为国家丶为社会的发展作出贡献。

一直以来,泰国中华总商会都受到泰国历届皇上陛下的庇佑。一九三O年,暹罗七世皇陛下恩任商会监护,并偕皇后殿下御驾亲临,恩赐主持商会新会址揭幕典礼。一九四六年,暹罗八世皇陛下偕御弟殿下(现为当朝九世皇陛下)驾临商会进御膳,并双双恩赐亲署御名。二OO三年,皇储殿下驾临商会,宣慰众会董臣民。

泰中建交以来,泰国中华总商会为增进泰中友谊,加强泰中经贸合作,促进泰中文化交流,作出了巨大贡献,深获泰中两国政府之器重。多年来,商会接待过多位莅泰访问的中国党和国家领导人,及中国各地政府领导。每逢泰中两国发生重大事件,商会皆率先响应,凭其在泰华各界之重要地位,发挥著模范带头作用。两年一度的世界华商大会,也是由泰国中华总商会、新加坡中华总商会、和香港中华总商会三个商会,联合发起。

二○○八年,郑明如主席任期届满,吴宏丰博士高票当选新第二十一届主席。吴宏丰博士接任新第21届主席后,即遵商会章程,从商会的根本利益和发展大局出发,集思广益,秉公处理各项工作,尽心维护商会各项权益。秉持管理民主、帐务透明、产业公开的原则,完善监督机制,全面构建和谐,并在增进信息交流、全面服务会董、密切团结侨社、活跃国家经济、深化泰中合作、弘扬中华文化、促进中国和平统一等方面做了大量有益的工作。在广泛征询和全面考虑多方意见的基础上,对新届会董会进行了大幅调整;为加强组织阵容,新聘多位著名侨领担任荣誉、名誉主席;为加强领导力度,将副主席由六位增为八位;为提高工作效率,增设了中、英、泰三种语言的正副秘书长;为加速会务拓展,对商会会员资格进行了重新审查登记,并向政府重新注册,调整了商会所属各股人事安排,选拔了有代表性的一些泰华各界精英成为新会董;为了加快培养商会后续力量,重新组建了青年股,为了活跃和丰富会董的业余生活,组建了歌唱团,并定期训练;为了与时俱进地开展工作,吴主席还率商会行政领导小组,对商会章程部分内容进行了修订,并提交会董大会审议通过;为了更好地进行各项联络交流,商会创办了季刊,由吴宏丰主席及八位副主席担任编辑委员会正副主任,由商会青年股担任委员。中华人民共和国驻泰王国特命全权大使张九桓阁下为该季刊赐名《双赢》并亲笔题写刊名。在吴主席的领导下,商会还与泰国最大的银行“盘谷银行”华人事务部联合,编撰“泰中经贸”专栏,每半月出版一期,在泰国六家华文报纸及商会网站上发表。

商会与泰国政府相关部门、各社团保持著良好互动与和谐相处,并积极从事各种慈善救灾工作。比如,在泰北遭受寒流袭击时,商会与泰国潮州会馆联合,向泰北民众捐赠4万条棉被御寒。

在弘扬中华文化方面,吴宏丰主席非常重视泰国的华文教育事业,他宣布,向新建校舍建筑费超过四百万铢的华文民校,私人赞助一百万铢,还代表商会向这些学校赞助一百万铢。目前已有数十家华文民校获得了资助。

商会还与泰国著名的华侨报德善堂在2009年9月签署了合作意向书,进行了一系列合作项目。例如,双方联合开设的“泰中商务讲坛”,便是一个面向全国的高级商务讲坛。泰国中华总商会是泰国二十七个外国商会联合会成员之一。同时领导泰华三十个各行业公会联合会,每两个月轮流举行一次联谊聚餐会。

中华总商会创立于时代之需求,肩负历史之使命,为侨民谋幸福,为侨民解困难,遵循先贤创会之宗旨,崇颂皇室,奉公守法,团结和谐,守望相助,促进交流合作。

泰国中华总商会在百年历史长河中,每一个时期、每一个阶段,端赖历届先贤为商会奠下坚实基业,各届会董为国家民族、为社会群体,精诚团结,继往开来,共创伟业,永志千秋。

The Thai Chinese Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1910 and has a history of 100 years. Under the joint-efforts of the previous boards, the scale of the Chamber of Commerce has continued to grow and develop. Today it has become the most influential Chinese community in Taihua society. The Chamber of Commerce clearly stipulates that its purpose is: to unite the overseas Chinese and help each other, to promote the well-being of the Chinese and overseas Chinese, and to contribute to the development of the country and society.

Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between Thailand and China, the Thai Chinese Chamber of Commerce has made great contributions to enhancing Thai-Chinese friendship, strengthening Thai-Chinese economic and trade cooperation, as well as promoting cultural exchanges between Thailand and China. For many years, the Chamber of Commerce has hosted many Chinese party and state leaders who visited Thailand, and leaders from various local governments in China. Whenever there were major incidents in Thailand and China, the Chamber of Commerce always took the lead in responding, and played an exemplary role with its important position across various circles in Taihua. The biennial World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention was co-founded by the Thai Chinese Chamber of Commerce, the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Hong Kong Chinese Chamber of Commerce.

Across every period and stage of the 100-year history, the successive sages have lay a solid foundation for the Thai Chinese Chamber of Commerce. For the sake of the nation and all social groups, the boards will sincerely unite, carry forward the past, and create a great cause in the future.
