During the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders' Meeting 2023, Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin of Thailand personally signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Microsoft to implement artificial intelligence (AI) technology in the country.
In the said memorandum, Thailand is partnering up with the tech giant to use AI and Cloud technology in the region to further improve the country's economic competitiveness and position as a regional leader in digital innovation and sustainability.
In adherence to the digital government and cloud-first policies of the Digital Economy and Society (DES) Ministry, Microsoft has committed to collaborating with the DES Ministry in their initiatives to develop and integrate AI into e-government projects and public services for the citizens of the country.
The said partnership is anticipated to fortify Thailand's economy, with AI playing a pivotal role in advancing smart digital infrastructure across various sectors, including agriculture, healthcare, tourism, and education, all while working towards using renewable energy for the potential investments. This, in turn, is expected to contribute significantly to the country's economic growth.
