Joint panel to push adoption of digital tech

The Council of Digital Economy and Society, in a joint effort with the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) and the Board of Trade of Thailand, will set up a working panel to help private companies adopt digital technology, said FTI chairman Supant Mongkolsuthree after meeting the council's chairman Suphachai Chearavanont today (October 15).



The panel will also facilitate the setup of data centres and usage of Big Data by private enterprises, Supant said, adding that there will be further discussions between the three partners. 
The working committee, Suphachai said, is expected to be fully set up this year.
The council would work closely with the FTI to introduce digital technology to all industries, he added.
The collaboration with FTI will focus on enabling companies to produce digital and eco-friendly products and services as well as upgrading the skills of Thai labour. 
He added that the government should provide tax incentives and low interest loans to companies planning to deploy digital technology to enhance their operations.
