Digital Economy Promotion Agency

Monsak Socharoentham, Vice President - Smart City Promotion, Digital Economy Promotion Agency

After completing my bachelor's degree ( in 1999) from Chaulalongkorn University, Thailand, I joined the national research institute (NECTEC; National Electronics and Computer Technology Center) as a research assistant. My professional period is involving R&D projects related to Internet Technologies, Web and IoT technologies, Geo-Informatics, Data Analytics, and Intelligent Transportation Systems.

I also had chances to work on several professional skills, including research operation (such as technical paper publication and patent filing), ICT developments (such as requirement analysis, programming, system and database design) , technical data exchange standards, and non-R&D (such as seminar organizing, seminar session facilitator, technical lecturer, arranging training courses, and project manager & coordinator).

At DEPA, I have a chance to manage a leading institute called IoT and Digital Innovation of Digital Economy Promotion Agency. The missions of the institute cover various dimensions namely IoT industry promotion, digital transformation and platforms promotion, manpower development, persuading foreign investors, and IoT Institute development (as part of Digital Park Thailand). To me, the missions are noteworthy, admirable and challenging. I am currently in charge of smart city promotion department at DEPA. Policy and practical measures are conducted and launched to drive Thailand 4.0 and digital economy.
