Purpose of the solution
Agriculture is one of the major sectors in the southern region of Thailand. However, the GDP from this sector has been declining and Thai farmers have been struggling to compete in the international market. The ‘Harmonizing business with science and technology’ concept aims to find a new way to develop and sustain this sector by creating activities that encourage local farmers/entrepreneurs to seek for new opportunities from local products. We aim to create sustainable business and boost local competitiveness.
We have enhanced networking, innovative and economic performances of the region. From the 1st of October 2019 to the 1st of October, 2020, there were 1,031 entrepreneurs in our service mechanism. In 5 years, we estimate that these entrepreneurs can generate income up to 1,270 million Thai Baht, create 1,082 jobs and form 1,237 collaborative networks.
