The IoT Market Potential
Launched in 2017, the Digital Government Plan is the 2nd phase of a government project to improve digital government infrastructure and public personnel capabilities. The goals of the plan are to improve Thailand’s Digital Government related rankings and indices, building infrastructure to improve efficiency and transparency for delivering government services and improving accessibility of services to the public.
The government set aside US $45 billion to develop the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), set to be a pillar of Digital Transformation in the country. At the EEC, the Digital Economy Promotion Agency (depa) is developing Digital Park Thailand. The park will house the Internet of Things Institute and will be a model to develop innovation and tech centres in other areas throughout the country. depa will pour in US$120 million over a five year period to build up the park, and provide subsidies for businesses. Project completion is slated for 2022.
US$ 1.3 billion has been budgeted to develop a smart city in the Phahon Yothin district of Bangkok that will serve as a pilot project for 76 other such cities to be established across the country within five years. The pilot smart city in Bangkok will focus on smart mobility and will include measures to facilitate transport, logistics and business opportunities.
The 38th edition of Asia IoT Business Platform will be held in Bangkok on 5-6 August 2020.
