“We remain optimistic despite a possible global economic slowdown,” she said. “Indeed, some of the key macro risks could result in opportunities for us. Specifically, the China-US trade tensions may have a positive effect on our businesses due to the diversion of trade and investment to Thailand and Vietnam for some industries like automotive, electronics, machinery and equipment.

WHA Group’s strategic directions will focus on raising the bar for its core businesses, further embracing innovation and smart technologies and continued development of collaborations with industry leaders.
