The System Integration Promotion Alliance (SIPA), a program from Taiwan's Industrial Development Bureau (IDB), recently brought a delegation composed of smart city and IoT companies to Bangkok.
The group attended the Smart City Industry Forum and the Taiwan-Thailand Industrial Collaboration Summit (TTICS) among other activities.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) in partnership with the Institute for Information Industry (III) and the Thai Internet of Things Association (TIOT) hosted TTICS to foster collaboration between the two regions' smart city sectors.
At TTICS, Sinotech Engineering Consultants signed a memorandum of understanding with AMATA Corporation to create development trials in Thailand around smart city projects. This cooperation will lead to clustering of innovative technologies with strong commercial outcomes.

We are ready to work closely with our partners to help the world innovate on the future of cities and tech.”
