In the swiftly advancing technological landscape, the AI technology is thriving and catalyzing digital transformation across diverse industries. The integration of AI not only unlocks Thailand’s economic potential but also presents unprecedented opportunities for stakeholders across the spectrum, including public and private sectors, businesses, and individuals. To support this up-and-coming trend, Huawei has announced its dynamic AI development strategy that embraces new changes and opportunities, supporting Thailand in seizing the wave of all intelligence and driving business development through technology sharing, experience collaboration, and ecosystem integration. This strategy is poised to reshape Thailand’s digital landscape, aligning with the country’s vision to become a regional AI hub in the ASEAN.

David Li, CEO of Huawei Thailand, highlighted Huawei Cloud’s commitment to enabling cloud and AI development in Thailand: “In the intelligent world that we live in today, the breakthroughs in AI technology are not just perceptible; they are transformative. The capabilities of AI have been developed from perception and cognition to content generation. Therefore, AI applications will also evolve from the consumer to auxiliary applications and eventually to core business applications. In the next two years, we strongly believe that 50% of core business industries will leverage AI to unleash trillions of dollars of new value. And Huawei is excited to collaborate with the Thai government to utilize AI as a driving force for Thailand 4.0. We leverage our localization, industry-centric focus, ecosystem-building initiatives, and commitment to security to propel Thailand to the forefront of the AI revolution. Together, we will pioneer an AI future that resonates with Thai people, culture, and innovation, leaving no one behind.”

Huawei also shared three strategic pillars for adopting AI in the development of Thailand, including:

  • AI for Thailand – Promoting the adoption of HUAWEI CLOUD AI solutions by collaborating with government agencies to release cloud and AI development strategies, focusing on digital government, diverse economy, and national digital security, to building the foundation for HUAWEI CLOUD AI to enter Thailand. Moreover, Huawei plans to unleash the value of AI by introducing a Thai-language-based AI to maximize the creativity of the Thai people and contribute to the development of Thailand’s AI human capacity.
  • AI for Industry – In the next two years, 50% of core industries will leverage AI to create new value at the industrial level, such as public services, healthcare, agriculture, financial services, etc. According to Thailand’s AI national strategy and master plan, the country’s AI industry is projected to be worth THB 48 billion by 2027. Therefore, Huawei will leverage HUAWEI CLOUD as a platform in industry development, with a focus on the finance and retail sectors, to accelerate the digitalization of Thailand’s industries and build a new growth curve.

AI for Ecosystem – The digital transformation of a diversified industry calls for the collective efforts of all industry stakeholders in the AI era, therefore a prosperous ecosystem is a key. Huawei has always valued partnerships and ecosystems, having assisted 48,000 global partners and established strategic partnerships with top tech companies. The company has initiated a program to develop 20,000 AI cloud developers in 3 years. Moreover, it will leverage the AI cloud community to foster local ecosystem growth and assist Thailand’s startups and partners in building their AI applications, promoting them within the region.

Mark Chen, President of Huawei Cloud Solution Sales Dept, explained more about Huawei’s AI Development Strategy: ” As we navigate the era of technology explosions, we celebrate the evolution of AI technologies and cloud such as computerization, text-to-speech, and speech recognition, offering limitless possibilities for the future. Huawei’s strategy revolves around heavy investments in technology, collaboration with global partners, and close engagement with industry players to build specific solutions. In Thailand, we are not just introducing cutting-edge technologies but actively participating in the country’s digital transformation journey. In 2021, we launched our Pangu AI model—a large-scale model designed to operate across diverse industries, enhancing operational efficiency and addressing industry-specific challenges. Our expertise spans product R&D, software engineering, production, and supply, among other areas. Drawing on our experience in these industries, we can envision how AI has the potential to significantly improve people’s lives.”

At the moment, many government and enterprise executives realize that AI presents significant opportunities for digital transformation, empowers the national economy, and enhances enterprise competitiveness. Huawei has provided services to over 800 e-government clouds, 500 financial customers, and 120 carriers. Simultaneously, the company has served 75% of China’s top 50 digital media companies, 85% of China’s top gaming companies, 90% of China’s top e-commerce companies, and 90% of China’s top 30 car makers.

Huawei has been deeply rooted in Thailand for 24 years and the company has witnessed and contributed to Thailand’s rapid digital development. In the transformative AI era, Huawei will continue investing in Thailand and will help Thailand’s industries to upgrade themselves with cloud and AI technologies together, ultimately elevating Thailand’s presence in the global AI landscape and align with its “In Thailand, For Thailand” commitment.
