Why Thailand?

Thailand, the second largest economy in ASEAN after Indonesia, is an upper middle-income country with an open economy, a gross domestic product (GDP) of US$536 billion, and a 2.8% annual growth in 2022.

An export-dependent economy, Thailand exported US$287.07 billion worth of goods in 2022 alone and was recognized by the World Bank as one of the great development success stories.

Thailand is one of the world’s most visited countries, and tourism is vital to the Thai economy. In 2018 direct receipts from tourists contributed about 12% of Thailand’s GDP, and indirect revenues could make the figure closer to 20%. Thailand recorded 39.92 million tourist arrivals in 2019.

The National Research Council of Thailand (NRCT) is a statutory agency of Thailand’s Ministry of Advanced Education, Science, Research, and Innovation; and is the key driver to promote and support research, invention, innovation, and technology transfer to related users in both the private and public sectors in Thailand. One of its main activities to promote inventions and innovations since 1995 is to hold Thailand Inventors’ Day.

On 10th May 1994, the Thai Cabinet resolved 2nd February of every year as Thailand Inventors’ Day, to commemorate the achievement of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Father of Thai Invention, for inventing Low-Speed Surface Aerator or Chaipattana Aerator. On August 14, 2001, the NRCT was appointed as the lead agency in coordinating with other government agencies and the private sector to host Thailand’s Inventors’ Day.

Every year, the event attracts around 1000 local and international teams.
