Bangalore, April 1: The state government is eager to collaborate initiatives with Thailand in the areas of Higher Education, IT, and BT, said Dr. C. N. Ashwath Narayan, Minister for Higher Education and IT/BT, on Friday.
He stated this to the delegation led by Nitirooge Phoneprasert, Consul General of Thailand in India which met him at Vikasa Soudha.
Thailand has sought the help of GoK in the areas of education and IT/BT. The delegation has also sought us to set up campuses of higher education in their country. The government is looking at it positively, he told.
Thailand is chiefly dependent on tourism activities. Considering this, the GoK is thinking about entering into MoUs with that country to enable Twinning Graduation, Minister Narayan told.
“The government intends to make the optimal use of the potential of IT/BT for economic progress. The Union and State governments also wish to strengthen the industrial and trade relationship with South-East Asian countries. The companies based in Bengaluru will be encouraged to expand their activities in Thailand,” he stated.
