Digital Economy Council chairman seeks to transform country into digital hub

Council of Digital Economy and Society chairman Suphachai Chearavanont is pushing to transform Thailand into a more competitive country and promote the kingdom as a digital hub in the region.

He made his stand clear during his speech on “Bring a digital future to everyone: making changes to remap Thailand in the digital world” at the “Digital Thailand Big Bang 2019: Asean Connectivity” event, which is being held at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre until October 31.
He said the urgent mission to keep up with changes is to set new standards and indicators for digital industries, encourage cooperation among various sectors, develop personnel with new skills, change the attitude of staff and support knowledge to prepare for a digital future.
“We will promote Thailand as a digital hub, supporting neighbouring countries and developing technologies to become more competitive,” he said.
“To achieve this mission, we have to change the digital infrastructure, open a way to draw investments for business, gain the trust and confidence of investors, create innovations and intellectual properties and go in for sustainable development where the environment and economy are concerned.”
Suphachai said data skills are important to keep up with changes, market trends and consumer habits. The new generation of organisations must drive business with information to increase accuracy and reduce errors and costs in business operations.
“Entrepreneurs must have a new vision to stay ahead and avoid relying on past success alone,” he added.
