Huawei ASEAN Academy on 3 August 2021 hosted “Technology Seeker vs Competence Development Workshop” in cooperation with the Eastern Economic Corridor Office (EECO) and Burapha University.
The aim of the online workshop was to share Huawei’s breakthrough technologies to accompany digitalization of the industrial sector and to consolidate knowledge and information for creating demand-driven training courses that enhance skills of ICT talents and so support targeted industries in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC).
Jointly opened by Dr. Kanit Sangsubhan, Secretary General of EECO, and Mr. Abel Deng, CEO of Huawei Thailand, the seminar gathered together top executives and entrepreneurs from EEC-based companies, SMEs and start-ups interested in technology adoption in industries that can foster economic growth and the country’s competitiveness.
During the seminar, Huawei experts explained the latest technological developments, including 5G, Cloud, Big Data, and IoT. The speakers looked at how innovative technologies enhance businesses and factories while maximising opportunities in a connected setup. They also shed light on innovative ways to promote knowledge transfer at both operational and managerial levels.
The online workshop also provided the perfect opportunity to gather feedback from participants and get a better understanding of the challenges, requirements and needs encountered by players on the EEC scene. This information will be used to tailor future courses and programs offered by the Huawei ASEAN Academy to help prepare and empower businesses as they move toward the Industry 4.0 objective.
“Opportunities and success don’t come if you don't create them,” commented Dr. Kanit Sangsubhan, Secretary General of EECO. “Through our joint efforts, Huawei ASEAN Academy (Thailand) EEC branch is creating opportunities not just to fill jobs but to develop digital skills and achieve outcomes that ensure success. With more and more users in the manufacturing sector adopting 5G technology, we hope to soon have 8,000 such business operations in the EEC. This, in turn, will mark an important step towards sustainable development and the drive to Industry 4.0.”
“With the support of the EECO and Burapha University, the goals of Huawei ASEAN Academy (Thailand) are well aligned with the EEC community, so we can offer a range of customised training courses,” said Mr. Abel Deng, CEO of Huawei Thailand. “The Academy’s goal is to build a healthy digital ecosystem in the EEC and the country by cultivating 30,000 digital talents within the next three years. Huawei will keep driving Thailand to become the region’s digital hub, increasing the country’s competitiveness, and building a sustainable economy and society. Together, we are rapidly creating a fully connected, intelligent Thailand.”
