Event Summary

JTTRI-AIRO has conducted research supported by a specific committee consisting of experts from government, industry, and academia from both Thailand and Japan to find solutions regarding the logistics issues in Thailand from three perspectives raised at the JTTRI-AIRO Symposium in June 2022, “improvement of efficiency of inland transportation and connectivity between transportation modes”, “utilization of ICT”, and “enhancement and strengthening of cooperation among logistics stakeholders”. In this symposium, JTTRI-AIRO will invite experts from government, industry, and academia to discuss how Thailand solves logistics issues through presentations, keynote speeches, and a panel discussion, for seeking strategies for strengthening the logistics network between neighboring countries and Japan.
