On 9 Feb, Airbus Defence and Space participated in the annual Geoinfotech 2017 convention held in Thailand, Bangkok.
Minister of Science and Technology, Mrs Atchaka Sibunruang visited the Airbus booth and was given a tour of the products and services throughout. She stressed the importance of raising the awareness in environmental disasters and how such technology could be maximized through resource management. With space technologies and GIS applications, it would also benefit developing countries to have a deeper understanding of such technology.
Mr. Anon Snidvongs Director GISTDA, said the event is to provide government agencies, the private sector and those interested in geo-informatics and space technologies. Such exchange of knowledge and ideas would benefit research and development from both national and international perspectives.
