To be held in collaboration with Thailand’s Digital Economy Promotion Agency (depa), this half-day seminar will shed light on the country’s numerous business opportunities, as well as the latest policies and incentives new players can benefit from.
Thanks to Thailand’s sound investment policies, increased regional connections and improvements in its transportation infrastructure, there has never been a better time to invest in the Land of a Thousand Smiles.
Also tirelessly working behind the scenes is Thailand’s Ministry of Digital Economy and Society (MDES), the nation’s main driving force behind the nation’s progress towards Thailand 4.0, where digital entrepreneurs are provided with resources to thrive, and traditional businesses are encouraged to undergo digital transformation.
“depa sees the increasing need and desire of SMEs to plug into the opportunities that have opened up in the region with digitalisation,” said Mr. Teeranun Srihong, Mr. Teeranun Srihong, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners, depa, which falls under the ministry.
Five areas of focus for Thailand at the moment are maximising the use of big data, building a digital-savvy workforce, enhancing cybersecurity, decreasing the income equality gap via connectivity, and digital transformation 4.0.
And speaking of digital transformation, Thailand is currently building Digital Park Thailand as a new economic cluster, and it will focus on digital business innovation and investment.
Its purpose is to serve global digital players, industrial manufacturers, investors and innovators, providing a favourable environment where they will be able to collaborate and live together. Incentives for investors and tenants provided by the Thai Government include utility, tax/non-tax incentives, as well as regulatory easing to create digital business innovation.
“I believe that our ‘Digital Transformation’ strategy will be sustainable and create mutual benefits for everyone in the global digital market,” shared Mr. Teeranun Srihong. “Digital transformation will result in continued growth of business development through economic challenges, by help reducing cost of businesses, stimulating investment, boosting employment, and increasing revenue.”
