New policies for PATA
Bangkok
 

Bangkok  
(21st Jan 2003)


THE PATA Board of Directors has voted in favour of a slew of new initiatives, including plans to:

  • develop a strong, close and supportive relationship with China and India;
  • add an Allied Partner membership category for government member bodies outside the PATA region;
  • create an Individual Member category;
  • appoint a full-time PATA member staff at headquarters to strengthen the PATA chapter network.

    The initiatives were announced one year after Mr. Peter de Jong became PATA President and CEO. Mr de Jong said: “For PATA to perform at its best in this new and difficult environment, we have had to confront some fundamental issues and make some strategic choices. Should PATA assume an assertive, global advocacy role on behalf of Pacific Asia? Should PATA begin to build a strong, direct relationship with the consumer? Should PATA develop a close and special relationship with China and India, on behalf of our members?”

    “We believe the answer to these three and various other important questions is a resounding Yes, we must'.”
