With its pivotal position in economy and trade, the Thai government in recent years has been also further promoting smart city, Thailand 4.0, and eastern economic corridor. Tatung has been a company full of solutions and experience in infrastructure for energy, and smart solutions for communities and industrial applications. The industry-university collaboration project will benefit the Company on the cultivation of local talents and expand the market in Thailand thus further prepares Tatung Group for ASEAN market.
The chairman of Tatung Thailand, M.Y. Hsieh, also pointed out that industry and university can both benefit from the collaboration project. More local talents will be needed under the new southbound policy. Tatung Thailand has plenty industrial experience to equip the students with professional know-how which in turn will enhance the penetration of local market for Tatung Thailand and hopefully facilitate the ASEAN market for Tatung Group.
