Amongst other things, Prof.Dr. Pavida said:
“Swedish companies are leaders in many areas that Thai businesses are looking to improve, for example, green and clean technology as well as automation and servicification of manufacturing activities. These areas could lead to win-win business opportunities and help upgrade Thailand’s manufacturing capabilities.
At the same time, as a country that performs very well on transparency and competitiveness, Sweden is a good example of how a country needs to pay attention to its domestic institutions in order to increase its global competitiveness.”
