Thailand offering opportunity in higher education, SMART farming, biotechnology
The Thailand Board of Investment will host seminars in Brisbane (May 21-23) and Sydney (May 23-25) detailing opportunities in Thailand for export of higher education services and transfer of higher technology, including SMART farming in the agriculture sector.
The Thai Government is fostering collaboration between Thai and foreign higher education institutions, which can now establish learning facilities along the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) and qualify for assistance under investment promotion laws.
BoI is also promoting technology and innovation development in biotech, nanotech, advanced materials, medical technology and digital technology. Foreign companies investing in these areas qualify for up to 10 years’ corporate tax holiday. Those establishing in the EEC zone qualify for a further 50% tax relief for five years.
The briefings will be led by Mr Salil Wisalswadi, Director of the BOI’s Investment Promotion Division.
