Ericsson launched its Imagine Live Thailand 2022 – a three-day event that serves as a platform for collaboration among key stakeholders in the telecommunication industry to drive Thailand’s digital transformation based on 5G.
The highlight of the event was the participation of key stakeholders, including the Embassy of Sweden in Thailand, the Royal Thai Government’s Digital Economy Promotion Agency (DEPA), King Mongkut Institute of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT) and Thai mobile operators, which marks their joint commitment to promote and accelerate digital transformation in Thailand.
Ericsson and DEPA will cooperate towards sharing their best practices, strategies as well as other relevant digital initiatives to promote innovations that support the development of Thailand’s digital economy.
Earlier in July, Ericsson and KMUTT jointly signed an MoU to join hands towards educating Thai students on 5G technology. KMUTT students will be provided access to ‘Ericsson Educate’, Ericsson’s online education initiative, which supplements KMUTT students’ ongoing technical studies with courses that would strengthen their ICT skills and increase their readiness for jobs in the Thai telecom sector.
“Ericsson will work closely together with our key stakeholders to drive the vision of Thailand 4.0 ecosystem. As the global 5G technology leader, Ericsson will bring its state-of-the -art technology and solutions together with its global experience and expertise to realize Thailand’s goal towards an integrated digital economy and society,” states Igor Maurell, Head of Ericsson Thailand.

Our key mission is to partner with stakeholders in the industry to come up with strategic plan to enhance the digital economy and society together with fostering innovations, which are relevant to DEPA’s goal to create the better living and bolster the competitiveness of the country,” said Dr. Passakorn Prathombutr, DEPA’s Senios Executive Vice President.
