In the last few years, we have witnessed the growth and expansion of smart city around the world – Australia and Thailand included. While the definition of a smart city is still evolving, it is evident that the smart city deploys information and communication technologies to enhance service levels, citizen well-being, sustainability, and economic development. The smart city also induces the stream of investment in infrastructure into the city – digital and non-digital – hence providing economic and employment opportunity for all involved.

For Thailand, the smart city initiative is part of the Digital Thailand agenda, supported by Digital Economy Promotion Agency (depa) and alliances via the guidance of the leadership of the National Smart City Committee. In this Forum, participants will get to know the insight of Smart City development in Thailand by President/CEO of depa and learn city best practices from both country representatives.
