Thai Prime Minister Announces Push for Marriage Equality Act at International Seminar Led by BJC Big C Group


On February 14th, 2024, Mr. Srettha Thavisin, Thai Prime Minister, gave a vision on the Thai government policy, fostering the Marriage Equality Act, at an international seminar “Business, Gender Diversity and the Way of the Future” by BJC Big C Group.

The seminar aimed to raise awareness and seek to create laws, regulations, and policies regarding gender diversity at national and international levels.

The Marriage Equality Act would allow people of the same gender to be engaged, married, and have equal rights, duties, and family status the same as regular couples, said Srettha.

Meanwhile, Mr. Aswin Techajareonvikul, the Chief Executive Officer of the BJC Big C Group, publicly revealed that LGBT+ people were not given as many deserved opportunities in important positions. They could not express themselves freely without being bonded by influence and thoughts set by society, stated Aswin.

Therefore, the BJC Big C Group aspired to be a part of promoting and supporting the value of differences in society. Aswin hoped that gender inequality would no longer be an issue to create balance and opportunity in organizations and society.

Meanwhile, Thailand continues to move closer to finalizing the marriage equality law as we reported here.
