BIIA 2017 Biennial Conference: Less than Three Weeks to Go

Due to the high interest in the BIIA 2017 Biennial Conference there are less than 10 tickets left.  We suggest you register now.  

The BIIA 2017 Biennial Conference is much more than a traditional gathering of credit and business information industry professionals.   This is a critical event for our members, customers, policy makers and regulators who are seeking information and insight on current and future challenges in a fast moving information environment.

The overarching theme of the event is Embracing Digitization and dealing with the challenges of convergence in the Credit Ecosystem:  It is all about technology, digitization of data, financial inclusion of consumers, Micro businesses, SMEs and corporate trade credit providers.  Last, but not least, the requirements by policymakers to protect the privacy of individuals, protecting their identity, warranting cyber security, complying with Anti-money laundering (AML) and KYC, causes a conundrum for users of information services and our industry because of the lack of access to information.

An outstanding career in the field of public policy, he has contributed to his country the design, formulation, and implementation of major national policies including science & technology, innovation, ICT, e-commerce, and education. His contributions have also been extended to international collaboration notably to ASEAN, APEC, UNCTAD, OECD, WHO, ITU etc., as well as establishing effective scientific diplomacy to bilateral, multilateral relations, and inter-agency collaborations.

Prior to his appointments to both ministerial portfolios, he founded and headed many important organizations including Secretary General of the National Science Technology and Innovation Policy Office, Executive Director of the Knowledge Network Institute of Thailand, Director of Electronic Commerce Resource Center, Chairman of the e-ASEAN working group, Director of the National Information Technology Committee Secretariat Office.

His policy track records have sustained long-term impacts to national and international development. A policy architect who understands the roles of integration and partnerships domestically and internationally, Dr. Durongkaveroj has been instrumental in establishing many policy platforms such as university-industry linkages, ASEAN integration, community water management, and most recently championing tech startup campaign. He is currently concentrating on digital development and digital for development covering broadband infrastructure, national digital park development, digital community covering e-commerce, e-health, e-government, and human resource capacity development.

He was Secretary General of the Securities Exchange Commission of Thailand between 2003 and 2011 and Chairman of ASEAN Capital Market Forum.  He obtained his first degree on Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science, London University, and later became a Fellow of Chartered Accountants after training at Price Waterhouse, London.  He started his career at the Bank of Thailand, the country’s central bank.  His last position there was Deputy Governor.
