Describe your leadership approach and what has been your success mantra. Having the experience of being President of the Thai Textile Merchant Association and now the medical Textile Cluster under The Federation of Thai Industries, I believe I have broader visions and a good view of what’s going on in the textile market. This makes me capable of making our company operate nonstop to the next level. I look at business as a chance to innovate and make them scientifically proven to deliver customer satisfaction.

Define Perma Corporation as an organization and its position in the market. Perma Corporation was established in 2016 to create new value and innovation in the textile industry. It is a Research & Development, technology, and innovation company under BOI promotion. It has been successful in developing PERMA™, a polyester fiber embedded with Nano Zinc that has a permanent and lasting antimicrobial effect. It is a unique, eco-friendly, value-added material that meets the needs of companies aiming to reduce their environmental impact and the needs of people looking for improving their quality of life. We look forward to continuing to develop functional and highquality products to meet the various needs of the market.

How do you ensure the operations of the company remain environmentally responsible? Nano Zinc has been tested and accepted by scientific research that can eliminate and inhibit the growth of bacteria, which is the cause of unpleasant odors, skin diseases, sinuses, and allergies, and is also safer than other technologies. It is environmentally friendly throughout the production process and use at every step from the production of fiber yarn, spinning weaving, or knitting into the fabric as well as various products. There is no toxic contamination to the environment because nano-zinc is embedded in the fibers. As a result, the product remains permanently effective in taking care of the wearer's health and the world at the same time.

What is your anticipation about the upcoming changes in the market and which are the areas the company plans to invest its goals moving forward? Thailand and other counties in the world have entered an aging society and also the Covid-19 epidemic situation. Therefore, they have become extremely health conscious. We plan to invest and develop more BCG models a holistic economic development, to develop a 3-dimensional economy at the same time including Bioeconomy, Circular, and Green Technology.
