- Already, Thailand has 173 mobile phone subscriptions per 100 people.
- Thailand lies in the heart Southeast Asia, the most rapidly-growing part of the world, and a region which will have 480 million Internet users by 2020.
Thailand is intensely focused on the next stage of its economic development, and offers substantial tax and other incentives to innovative, high-tech and high value-added investment. This conference will explore opportunities for U.S. companies in areas such as AI, robotics, e-commerce, fintech, blockchain and other cutting edge industries. The event will also discuss the frameworks and policies needed to promote the growth of those industries.
