Government, private sector, universities and start-ups are working together to develop an innovation ecosystem to support the Thailand Government’s economy 4.0 agenda. Thailand is eager to develop an inclusive, sustainable and technologically advanced economy, which is reflected, for example, in the emergence of digital parks, co-working spaces and in its vibrant community of entrepreneurs.
