The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) will host a webinar at 2pm-3.30pm on June 30 to share tech solutions to prevent, detect and monitor Covid-19 with Thai businesses, in a bid to help kick-start Thailand’s economy after lockdown.
“The world is working hard to contain the outbreak and looking for innovative technologies and solutions to deal with current and future challenges,” said HKTDC chairman Peter KN Lam.
Technologies developed in Hong Kong range from self-cleaning doorknobs, an anti-bacterial coating, delivery robots, and virus-filtering for ventilation systems, to mobile fever detecting robots and dashboards to monitor infection.
HKTDC has designated June as “Thailand month” with a series of online events. A highlight is the webinar co-organised by the Thai Board of Investment and Hong Kong’s Commerce and Economic Development Bureau, featuring Kobsak Pootrakool, deputy secretary-general to the Prime Minister, HKTDC’s Lam and Hong Kong’s Commerce and Economic Development Secretary Edward Yau. The webinar will be held from 4pm-5.30 pm on June 29.
Apart from health tech, medical tech and Covid-19 related areas, the HKTDC’s “Thailand month” will also cover practical solutions in times of social distancing and remote working, including online education, e-commerce, e-business and smart-city technologies that help with business continuity.
