BANGKOK, Jan 13 (TNA) – Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) Koichi Hagiuda on Thursday paid a courtesy call on Thai Prime Minister and Defense Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-ocha at Government House.
The Prime Minister thanked METI for their collaboration in uplifting Thai industry through application of digital system, AI IoT, and 5G system.
The collaboration will be further tightened to achieve SDGs in energy and carbon dioxide emissions reduction.

The Japanese METI Minister added that Thailand is one of the target countries under Japan’s initiative “Asia-Japan Investing for the Future (AJIF)”.
Co-creation between private sectors would lead to future investment and sustainable socio-economic growth of the two countries and the Asian continent as a whole.
