A Glimpse of Thailand’s Defence Industry in 21st Century

Thailand has been transiting away from an import-based defence procurement using foreign manufacturers by building a resilient, indigenous defence industrial base. The priority is on technology transfer for defence procurement programs which support the development of local industry and increase the efficiency of Thai military activities, supplying domestic military forces, focusing on R&D and upgrading both efficiency and technology

The DS2022 webinar #4 is aimed at promoting knowledge sharing and providing business opportunities for entrepreneurs in the Defense Industry both locally and abroad to progress their interest in conducting business in Thailand. This will further establish a continuation of the national defense industry and help Thai entrepreneurs be ready to keep up with changing future trends in the industry.

With the full support from the Defence Technology Institute (DTI), the webinar will be presented by some of the country key’s policy makers, industry experts, and leading entrepreneurs in the defense industry. The topics covered include:

  • An overview of
    trends in defense technology in the global industry
