“PAVING THE WAY TOWARDS AN INNOVATION-DRIVEN ECONOMY IN THAILAND”

Thailand is fast developing into a technology and innovation hub in Asia. Keeping pace with the changing global innovative environment, it aspires to become a knowledge-based economy through adoption of cutting-edge technologies, investment in R&D and digitised sectoral transformation. Its progress is aimed at developing an inclusive, sustainable and technologically advanced economy that fully caters to the dynamics of the fourth industrial revolution while effectively managing its side-effects.

Technology and innovation have re-imagined the future scope of work by incorporating smart and out-of-box solutions in the lives of people. As people are becoming more conscious of the utility of technological synergies, governments and private sector companies are bound to adapt to digitisation, and where necessary, disruptive technologies. Thailand envisions to capture this re-imagination in its future economy under Thailand 4.0. It aims to bring about digital transformation in high-end manufacturing and technology sectors.

The Asian Banker is pleased to announce the Thailand Innovative Study Tour 2019, which includes two days of site visits to Digital Ventures, Krungsri Finnovate, Central Tech, Ngern Tid Lor, True Digital Park and Ananda Development and dialogues with their key people who are driving the technological innovation in their organisations.

The tour is organised in conjunction with The Future of Finance Summit 2019 on 30-31 May.This is a Summit for bold, visionary leaders who are willing to destroy as much as they are willing to create, who know what to give up as much as what they expect to gain. This is the year to take stock of the changes we already understand and ask some of the hardest questions on transformation.

Delegate seats are limited to 30 participants to allow more interaction and participation.
