In recent years, the Information & Communication Technologies industry has risen significantly in Singapore and Thailand.
In Singapore, the government is making continuous efforts to turn the country into a Smart Nation. Well-known international tech companies, as well as local start-ups, can leverage Singapore’s favourable policy infrastructure and increased investments to develop solutions primarily for the education, healthcare, manufacturing, tourism, transportation, hospitality and finance sectors.
On its end, Thailand is a fast-growing market in South-East Asia and the second largest buyer of ICT products and services in the ASEAN region. Here too, the Thai government is making efforts to digitalize the public sector, accelerate towards a digital economy and digital society and increase digital literacy.
The two accessible markets are in need of novel solutions in hardware and software implementation that will push the Information & Communication Technologies agenda development forward.
For this reason, the EU Gateway | Business Avenues programme will focus its 2019 business mission to South East Asia on the two markets.
The programme will select for the programme up to 50 of the most innovative European companies that offer solutions for big data, e-commerce, e-government, e-health, e-care, web and mobile cloud services, online platforms, protection of personal data, audio-visual media services, on-demand services, e-transport, e-energy, cybersecurity, robotics, 3D printing, Internet of Things, embedded technology, wearables and smart cities.
Is your company one of them? Think no further and take the plunge at the opportunity to expand on the two Asian markets.
If chosen among the participants, your company will have the opportunity to not only embark on the business mission to Singapore and Thailand and showcase your ICT solutions, but also to receive broad logistical and financial support.
Before the mission, the programme participants receive coaching from local experts, help with matchmaking with targeted Asian companies and widespread promotion on the goal markets. During the mission, ad-hoc and pre-arranged meetings are to take place with targeted local companies. The mission is an occasion for participants to discover the markets, establish long-term partnerships and acquire new customers.
