Mr. Roongrote said “In ASEAN, we continue to implement strategies coupled with solidifying the SCG brand. SCG believes that this market holds high prospects with dynamic growth from the government’s investment policies as well as domestic consumption and trade among ASEAN countries. As for SCG’s ASEAN investments, they are according to the plan with the cement plant in Myanmar holding a production capacity of 1.8 million tons per year and Vietnam’s 2nd kraft paper plant at 243,000 tons per year amounting to a total of 489,000 tons per year. Both plants have begun commercial production in early 2017 while the cement plant in Laos PDR is in the phase for its trial run. Moreover, SCG has prepared for future challenges in this year such as the chemicals’ raw materials costs and rising energy prices. Also, an increasing number of competitors have entered the cement and building materials as well as the packaging business.

Thailand’s 2017 GDP shows an upward trend resulting from government investments in large-scale infrastructure together with continual investment schemes which are expected to enhance private sector’s confidence and propel domestic consumption.

SCG has sustainably highlighted the development of High Value Added (HVA) products and services to uplift quality of life and resolve as well as response to social demands amid prompt execution and challenging limitations. Take, for example, the temporary public toilet project in the Sanam Luang area was completed in 3 days thanks to the innovative prefabricated technology namely the SCG Heim modular homes, advanced roofing systems, SCG SmartBOARD walls.

In 2016, SCG spent a total of 4,350 MB in research and development, an increase 24% y-o-y, accounting for 1% of the total Revenue from Sales. The 2016 Revenue from Sales of HVA products accounts to 160,910 MB, 38% of the total Revenue from Sales. Moreover, aside from innovative products and services contributing to the growing revenue, SCG has incorporated digital technology along with promoting corporate cultures equipping employees with skills for efficient, speedy performances to manage aggressive competition and diverse consumer behavior”
