"India and Thailand share a cultural and historical relationship spanning centuries, even millennia. It is evident in Thai daily life. Meanwhile, our warm diplomatic relations are only seventy-one years young and do not yet reflect its fullest potential, especially in the economic field. Thailand's Indian diaspora numbers around 250,000. It is not a large number and Thais of Indian origin have assimilated well into Thai society. Yet the Indian diaspora, with their active social organisations, plays a valuable role as a bridge linking India and Thailand, so that the "New India 2022" and "Thailand 4.0" set within the "ASEAN Community" can be each other’s engines of growth towards a sustainable and inclusive future."

-H.E. Mr Chutintorn Gongsakdi, Ambassador of Thailand to India



With growth comes urbanization. However, as people move to the cities, the quality of life of our citizens deserves equal, if not more attention. Cities can be the origin of problems themselves, such as resources shortages, pollution, health issues, crime and general urban decay. We need to respond. First, we have to ensure that growth is distributed to remote areas of countries as well. This will help slow urban drift and urban sprawl. Second, we have to work together on smart cities that are greener, more IT-enabled, can leverage data to make smarter decisions and collaborate with other smart cities across the globe. It is most satisfying that inclusive and sustainable growth is what all countries and cities are pursuing together today.
