There are almost 70 million people in Thailand, but the 300 men and women we’ve profiled this year are ones that are truly making the country forge ahead.
Now in its third year, our annual ‘300 High Flyers’ list features young individuals who are innovating, disrupting, and re-inventing their industries and driving change across Thailand’s socio-economic landscape. Brilliant, bold, confident, and poised, each and every member on this list of Thailand’s most influential young entrepreneurs, tastemakers, movers and shakers represents the new generation of achievers who are shaping the world before our very eyes. Covering all spheres of endeavour — from business and innovation, to philanthropy, fashion, art and culture — all are doing their part to build a prosperous economic future for everyone in the Land of Smiles.
While many of them are familiar faces with recognisable surnames — the next generation of powerful Thai family dynasties — others have seemingly emerged from nowhere to make an indelible impression all on their own. Our honourees are the captains of industry, trailblazers, movers, shakers, and tastemakers — all under the age of 45 — who represent a new generation that hold the keys to the country’s future and prosperity in their hands.
Compiling this list is by no means an easy task, as there are many other achievers who have carved a successful path for themselves — but we feel this group is truly representative of Thailand’s New Establishment. They are individuals who lead by example, and certainly worth watching closely.
The future looks bright — take a look.
