Due to the COVID-19 situation, the government removed certain limitations on electronic meetings (e-meetings), including a rule that had required that at least one-third of the quorum be present in the same location in Thailand.

An emergency decree on electronic meetings replaces the prior rules, and removes certain limitations by allowing entities including companies (both private and public companies) to be able to hold virtual board of director and shareholder meetings without the physical attendance requirement from any location.
