The question of Thailand’s role as a digital centre of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) relies on being a Digital Economy leader. Thailand’s geo-centricity in S E Asia is often heralded as a natural advantage in regional trade and investment.
That might apply to goods, but the winner in the digital world will be the economy with a Digital Economy which is innovative, attractive and trusted, underpinned by soft and hard telecoms infra, highly regarded for Ease of Doing Business and competitiveness.
What in Thailand’s Digital Economy including infrastructure and data prowess can be used to support its ability to act as a digital and data centre in the GMS? What needs to be developed further and enhanced?
On 28th October 2020, “Data, Investment and Technology: Establishing Thailand at the centre of the Greater Mekong Subregion” was held as part of the Telecoms World Asia 2020 conference.
