(Bangkok) The US-ASEAN Business Council applauds the Thai Cabinet’s endorsement of the resolution by the Center for Economic Situation Administration (CESA) that, in principle, agrees with Thailand Board of Investment (BOI)’s investment promotion measures to ramp up the support of cloud-based services across both public and private sectors and upgrade digital infrastructure in Thailand. This move follows recommendations by bodies such as BOI and the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society (MDES) and is in line with trends already observed by the Thai public and private sectors in actively pushing the boundaries of digital transformation through cloud computing, as well as other digital innovations such as analytics, AI and machine learning.

From November 15-24, the US-ASEAN Business Council (USABC) engaged top Malaysian officials on Malaysia’s economic recovery from the global pandemic, its role in global supply chains, economic policies, and sought to identity ways of deepening levels of transparent process to policymaking as a part of USABC’s annual Malaysia Business Mission. This was the first year the annual business mission was conducted in a hybrid format. The delegation engaged with key ministers and government officials from the UMNO Government that came into office in August this year. This engagement is part of the Council’s continued effort to highlight the commitment of the American business community to Malaysia’s dynamic growth and to support Malaysia’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
