Software Park Thailand, the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) and the Department of International Trade Promotion will send a team of Thai application developers to participate in CommunicAsia 2017.
The event is considered the largest IT show in Asia, and will be held in Singapore from May 23-25. The Thai pavilion will consist of 12 Thai companies showing off their latest IT solutions for organisations, education, logistics and communications.
According to a release from the NSTDA, software developers need government support.
“From the government’s Thailand 4.0 policy, which aims to help Thailand step from a middle-earning country to a high-earning country with various digital developments, software developers are an important force that needs support from the government,” said Chalermpol Tuchinda, director of the Software Park Thailand, which is run by the NSTDA to support the software industry.
“Our target is to help promote Thai software developers, particularly helping start-up companies or new software companies to show their products at the international level. This would lead to sales and business matching, resulting in growth, education, generating income and expanding the Thai software to the international level.”
