The program recognizes companies that conduct business in a way that creates long-term economic and social value. The Creative Partnership designation, a joint recognition by AMCHAM and the U.S. Embassy, awards AMCHAM members that employ creative or innovative approaches to corporate social responsibility while also building U.S.-Thai partnerships.
