Thailand’s Ministry of Labour announces new digital academy

The Ministry of Labour launched the Digital Skill Development Academy (DISDA), a newly established unit that will oversee digital skill development for the workforce; and a new DSD application via an event entitled “Building Thailand Digital Workforce”.

During the event, DISDA, in collaboration with the Thailand arm of a Chinese multinational technology company kicked off the first seminar entitled “Enhance Business and Industry with Digital Technology Skill Development,” to share knowledge with over 100 entrepreneurs on the latest IT technologies and exchange visions on the demand for digital workforce development.

The event was a response to the serious need to develop more and more skilled workers, especially as investors from S-curve industries arrive in the country, in line with the government’s Industry 4.0 policy.

The Ministry of Labour is introducing a series of initiatives to ensure the country’s ability to supply the needs of the labour market in the near future. Its key objective is to bring down the unemployment rate and raise the standard of living through sustainable development.
