Japanese companies makes inroad into Thai market

Storage of data is an essential part of digital transformation in modern era. NTT Communications, the one of the largest IT service providers in the world, runs system integration and network services in the Mekong area of Thailand. Bangkok 2 Data Center is the biggest storage area around the Easter Economic Corridor. However, as the leader in solar power in ASEAN, Thailand is the driving force behind the development of the market. Sharing the same vision and determination, Japan-based Kyocera cultivated a partnership with SPCG, Thailand's leader in solar project development. Kyocera started R and D to manufacture solar panels more than 40 years ago, and now is expanding its business worldwide. SPCG developed 35 solar farms utilizing Kyocera panels and is now expanding the business to rooftop solar systems, supporting people in producing clean energy for their own consumption. Japanese firms are actively collaborating with the Southeast Asian area on educational issues. Since August 2016, Meidensha Corporation has initiated an endowed lecture in King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL) of Thailand targeted with senior student group activities in the Electrical Engineering major.
