PATA CEO BLOG: 27 Degrees of Separation...
I am referring to the degree of latitudinal difference between Bangkok, where PATA’s headquarters are located, and New York. On a recent family holiday to Canada and the U.S., I took the opportunity to have lunch with representatives from PATA’s Canadian and New York Chapters to learn about their opportunities and challenges.

That 27-degree of separation can be felt in conversations when talking about the primary advocacy themes of PATA as they don’t resonate as well in the Americas as they do in Asia.
