On Wednesday 6 February a delegation of the Royal Thai Consulate – Thailand Board of Investment (BOI) visited the Smart Mobility Embassy to explore and discuss Dutch smart city and smart mobility strategies. This year in Thailand, smart city is being promoted intensely by the government. The topic is listed with high priority on the agenda.
The delegation consisted of the director and the project coordinator from the Thailand Board of Investment (BOI) dependance in Frankfurt. The visit was the first step in creating a smart mobility network between Thailand and The Netherlands.
Thailand Board of Investment (BOI) is a government agency and operates under the aegis of the Prime Minister’s Office. Their major roles aim at encouraging foreign investment into Thailand by offering tax and non-tax incentives, providing comprehensive information and advising on establishing operations in Thailand, including related business support services to interested foreign investors. The BOI operates 14 offices in major world cities, including Frankfurt, Germany.
Mr. Rob Olde Heuvelt (Director Export at member organization Dynniq) shared his expertise with the Thai guests and planned for future collaboration. Dynniq helps to manage energy and mobility flows in our society through advanced technology solutions. Their mission is to enable people, data and goods to reach their destinations safely, sustainably and efficiently.
The Smart Mobility Embassy and Thailand Board of Investment will stay in touch to explore the options on hosting a Thai delegation around the 13th ITS European Congress 2019 that will take place in Brainport Eindhoven, The Netherlands in June.
