And, we have made good progress in the direction we announced five years ago as can be seen in some of the extraordinary global phenomena that we have created, ranging from the transformation of Siam Center into a haven of trendy ideas to turning Siam Discovery into a hybrid retail destination. For the first time ever, retail developments in Thailand have received the very top awards from the world's most respected retail and retail development associations. And, most recently, the opening of the mega-city ICONSIAM was a 2018 sensation for Bangkok as well as being held up as one of the world's best projects by the retail and retail development sector as one which helps reinforce Bangkok as a destination that people from around the world want to visit."

We have planned a new strategy that will drive our operations and set our investment direction. The focus will be on sharing business opportunities with the rest of Thailand and joining hands to take business associates overseas. We will introduce superior innovations and technologies to drive our marketing strategy. In the next five years, we aim to grow the revenues of our group by 100 to 150 percent."
