Thailand 4.0: Seeing is Believing

19 – 24 August 2018 • Bangkok

This Overseas Market Workshop is jointly organised by Enterprise Singapore (ESG) and Singapore Business Federation (SBF).

Opportunities in the 10 S-Curve industries in Thailand

The government of Thailand is taking several measures to shift the country from a production-based to a service-based economy, moving from producing commodities to innovative products, emphasising on promoting technology, creativity, and innovation in the industries under focus. Moving to Thailand 4.0 could help the country escape the middle-income trap and growing disparities.

  1. First S-curve or five existing industrial sectors (which can be developed by adding value through advanced technologies -Next-Generation Automotive, Smart Electronics, High-Income Tourism and Medical Tourism, Efficient Agriculture and Biotechnology and Food Innovation) and

     

  2. New S-curve or five sectors which can serve as growth engines to accelerate Thailand’s future growth -Automation and Robotics, Aerospace, Bio-Energy and Bio-chemicals, Digital and Medical and Healthcare.

 

Join this trip if you are keen to do business in the fast-growing S-curve sectors in Thailand. Seats are limited and based on first come first serve basis.
