Peter has been an active member of the local business community, most notably through the American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand where he has served in various roles over the years, including as chairperson of the Digital Economy committee and as a member of the Chamber’s Board of Governors. Through ISM’s membership in the Singapore-Thai Chamber of Commerce, he also contributes time and effort to the Digital Economy committee of the Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce in Thailand and is active in lobbying the Thai government on regulatory reform, including work permit and visa controls, as well as supporting the development of e-Government. He has contributed to many position papers on enhancing the ease of doing business in Thailand, especially as related to enabling the Digital Economy.
