Digital Skills

Digital technology has become an integral part of everyday life in Thailand, from connecting with friends through social media to making financial transactions using mobile banking apps. More people than ever before are using digital devices, making it critical that all Thais possess the necessary knowledge to use these tools effectively.

One way of accomplishing this goal is through education. Thanks to online learning platforms, students are now able to take their studies outside the classroom and tailor their experience. This has provided Thais access to quality education regardless of socioeconomic status or location.

Workplace learning opportunities provide another route to digital skills development. According to AWS research, creating tech-savvy workforce has significant economic advantages such as increased productivity and enhanced employee engagement. Furthermore, a highly skilled workforce helps businesses adapt quickly to changing business requirements.

COVID-19 has led to widespread digital transformation across all sectors, making it more critical than ever for employees to have the appropriate skills in order to keep up with its changes. While employees who had digital skills held an advantage over those without them before, employers now must offer training and support programs so that all employees have what they need for future success.

Companies looking to meet the high demand for digital skills need to provide employees with a range of learning options, including on-the-job training, on-demand and self-paced courses and certification programs. In addition, employers should ensure employees become acquainted with relevant tools and software.

Coding, data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) skills are in high demand in the digital economy. These abilities help businesses improve decision-making, enhance customer service and cut costs; as well as creating new revenue streams and increasing efficiency.

Thailand has introduced several initiatives to address its digital skills gap, from encouraging investment and encouraging innovation, to offering international talent visas that allow them to work in Thailand – this will boost Thailand’s digital economy as well as its global competitiveness.


Thailand has experienced rapid smartphone and other connected device growth since 5G deployment, and 5G’s advanced capabilities such as Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC), and Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC) are driving digital transformation of industries here.

GSMA Intelligence data showed that Thailand reached 5.7 million 5G users by March 2022 due to an array of factors, including early release of spectrum and rapid network rollout; availability of affordable 5G devices has helped drive adoption; as has glass-free 3D video streaming requiring high spectral efficiency; the Ericsson Radio portfolio can meet these demands thanks to its lower energy footprint and massive MIMO technology.

Thailand’s thriving economy has made it a key market for mobile connectivity and 5G technology. Multiple operators have introduced commercial services on this network; however, AIS was the pioneer to launch this service commercially on 2.6GHz spectrum. Working closely with ZTE and employing multiple technologies including FR2+FR1 international roaming as well as SEPP international roaming to build high quality networks that provide subscribers with additional services and improved experience.

TrueMove, another major player in Thailand’s telecoms sector, provides 5G services on both 2.6GHz and 700MHz bands. Backed by an extensive fiber optic backbone and boasting over 200,000 base stations deployed, however it has struggled to compete with its counterparts such as AIS and True in terms of 5G availability – Opensignal has indicated this in several provinces where True’s network falls significantly behind.

DTAC plans to invest heavily in its 5G network. Not only will it upgrade existing networks, but will deploy 5G in various cities such as Phra Nakhon Si Ayuthaya, Nakhon Pathom and Rayong. Moreover, the company has established a test bed at Chulalongkorn University with the purpose of demonstrating the power of 5G for use within manufacturing industries.

Smart Cities

Thailand 4.0 plan calls for smart cities as part of modernizing urban centers and increasing productivity, according to Commerce Minister Phumtham Wechayachai who recently stated that by 2027 105 large municipalities will have become smart cities using big data solutions for everyday issues affecting residents.

Digital Economy Promotion Agency (Depa) is working to accelerate smart city development through investment attraction. Working under the umbrella of the National Steering Committee on Smart City currently chaired by a deputy prime minister, Depa offers various forms of incentives for interested parties such as tax reductions from Board of Investment; Smart Visa for skilled workers; technological sandbox; and incubation programs that bring both solution providers and municipalities closer together.

Smart cities use information and communication technologies (ICT) to develop, implement and promote sustainable development practices that enhance people’s quality of life. Through data analysis and digital technology solutions, they help make better decisions and increase efficiency across an ever-expanding global population.

Smart Cities can play an invaluable role in creating a more sustainable environment by employing technologies and infrastructure systems that reduce waste, pollution, and support more efficient, green mobility. Their primary purpose is improving public services while supporting community-led urban planning and design processes. Their ecosystem consists of both hardware (sensor networks/connectivity infrastructure) and software components focusing on applications/analytics for maximum sustainability.

Ban Chang, situated in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), is one of the country’s first smart cities. Led by Ban Chang Municipality in partnership with National Telecom (NT) and other private and state-owned enterprises, this ambitious endeavor represents one of the nation’s first forays into smart city technology.

NT, as the country’s premier telecom service provider, operates fixed and mobile telephone networks as well as broadband Internet connection services for consumers in Indonesia. They also pioneer cutting edge technologies and offer international connection services like satellite and submarine cable network connections. Furthermore, NT collaborates with partners in creating 5G infrastructure of the future; including smart sensors integrating artificial intelligence (AI) for analysis data prediction needs as well as predictive maintenance needs analysis.

Artificial Intelligence

Digital technologies are indispensable to building an economy with wide access, yet many still lack internet. Yet their innovations pose risks as they threaten to replace jobs or disrupt traditional business models; therefore, an AI governance framework must be put in place in order to ensure responsible use.

Thailand’s government is taking measures to promote its burgeoning tech ecosystem with various initiatives. These include creating a digital industry promotion agency and various incubator and accelerator programs; also offering tax exemptions and investment funding incentives for startup businesses.

COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the start of some initiatives that could potentially hinder development and adoption of new technologies in Thailand. Furthermore, this pandemic had an immense effect on Thailand’s tech scene as many events and conferences had to be cancelled or postponed due to illness-related cancellations or postponements by companies.

True Corporation, one of the country’s premier digital services companies, recently unveiled an ethical use charter for artificial intelligence (AI). This charter acknowledges its many beneficial applications while cautioning that misused applications could lead to job loss and requires tight regulation to avoid abuses of this technology.

AI can be applied across many industries and applications to boost productivity, efficiency and safety. For instance, AI can reduce manual processes by automating repetitive tasks to free workers up for more complex and creative work; improve customer service by analyzing patterns in customer data and anticipating future needs; or enhance security by detecting malicious activities in real-time and notifying staff accordingly.

AI’s benefits are evident and it is already changing numerous areas of our lives. More companies may adopt this technology shortly in order to strengthen their competitive edge and streamline operations more efficiently.
