Thailand – Thailand’s Digital Economy and Society (DES) Ministry and cloud service provider Huawei Technologies in Thailand have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), aimed at establishing the ‘Joint Software Innovation Centre’, as part of their commitment to promote the cloud ecosystem in the public and private sectors.

The new centre seeks to support the cloud ecosystem, including government agencies, industrial partners, start-up businesses, and jointly developed applications that can be customised in the government cloud for users in the country’s government agencies.

Chaiwut Thanakmanusorn, DES’ minister, shared that they have signed a cooperation agreement between the Ministry of Digital Affairs and Huawei Technologies Thailand to drive collaboration on cloud technologies, innovative research, and big data management, as well as the development of the digital workforce.

“Most importantly, they will be upgrading the development of government personnel, enhancing their skills. The goal is to reach 2,000 people and create opportunities for government officials to travel and exchange experiences at Huawei’s Global Innovation and Learning Center, as well as explore new innovations in future technologies such as big data, AI, linkages of intelligent devices, and 5G technology,” said Thanakmanusorn.

In addition, both are also looking to expand the public cloud storage to keep up with the needs and support the use of users in Thai government agencies by taking advantage of cloud services.
