Echoing the movement of the 2019 World Economic Forum in Davos, the Summit called for business decision makers to mobilize their resources to aggressively deliver on the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 and to achieve a low carbon future.
The Asia Responsible Enterprise Awards (AREA) 2019 recognises and honours Asian businesses for championing sustainable and responsible entrepreneurship in various categories.

Through practical and theoretical training with knowledge and skill assessment tests , trainees can acquire an electrician certificate necessary for job applications in order to generate additional income for local electricians across Thailand.
