Sure I’d be happy to clarify.
Web admin was for the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Thailand and I was the editor of their weekly bulletin and website admin on a volunteer basis for two years before being employed as a manager there. At the time, I was on a visa here in Thailand that restricted employment.
Working for the government - 5 years in the Administrative section of the Nova Scotia Department of Education (Canada). I worked on many projects during my tenure - in the Labour Market Partnerships division. One of my favourites was making an online and in print resource for high schools to match their skill sets with available job opportunities and apprenticeships. (not everyone needs Uni).
I also had a brief stint at UNDP here in Bangkok at the BRH (Bangkok Regional Hub) in the Partnerships and Resource Mobilization division for RBAP (Regional Bureau for Asia Pacific. While there I was a part of teams looking to streamline the Due Diligence paperwork for partnerships as well as consolidating communications across the departments onto one communication channel. On top of this I managed a team of UN volunteers and conducted interviews with 25 country offices on a country snapshot, as well as conducting research into the Word Bank and Asian Development Bank’s public/private partnerships.
As for the Reddit link - I didn’t write that but I think everyone who works for NEM should know how it works, __but given how opaque the council has been its sometimes hard to pierce the veil. No it doesn’t need to be mentioned as an expertise and I take your point.
Thai regulations on the blockchain space - I’ve been following, studying, reading, and meeting with the Thai SEC on numerous occasions and we hope to work with them on some educational materials to better explain how to do a blockchain project in Thailand. The draft law is quite confusing and I have been reading and rereading it, consulting with peers in the space locally and asking questions to the relevant authorities. The law is still not totally finished an will be continuously evolving - the taxation isn’t worked out yet…you can either be taken 7%VAT and call it a day or they could add a 20% ‘capital gains’ - in quotations as TH doesn’t HAVE capital gains tax, but this was the term and amount floated. Recently they seem to have decided on 15% withholding tax for retail trades, but they still don’t know how to enforce and the going theory is that exchanges will have to do it for them.
Literally immersing myself in the topic has made me very well versed in it.
You don’t sound harsh, you should ask hard questions of all the candidates that are putting themselves out there. Hope this explains a bit more. I think the ‘expertise’ tag for the Reddit AMA were more topic generators than anything to try to revive the r/NEM thread as it doesn’t get much traffic. I think a more accurate descriptor would be, areas of work, interests, well versed. But now we’re getting into semantics.
Keep asking questions and keep (hopefully) getting answers!
