PH, Thailand strengthen S&T cooperation 

SCIENTIFIC and technological (S&T) activities in the Philippines and Thailand recently got a big boost as science and technology leaders in both countries signed a legally binding agreement to work together in promoting the scientific cooperation between the countries.

Representing the Philippines and Thailand are Department of Science and Technology Secretary Fortunato T. de la Peña and Ministry of Science and Technology Minister Atchaka Sibunruang respectively.

The Philippine-Thailand agreement shall also pave the way to link up organizations, agencies, universities, and firms in both countries, and conclude implementing arrangements. To run for five years, the program started this March and will last until March 2023. 

Based on the agreement, the Philippines and Thailand shall carry out S&T cooperation in joint research and development; exchange of scientists, specialists, and representatives of academic, research, industrial, and trade organizations; exchange of technical documentation and information; arrangement of bilateral conferences and symposia on subjects of mutual interest; and other forms of cooperation in the field of science and technology.

The two governments also concurred to include visits and exchanges of S&T specialists in fields beyond the agreed areas in the current agreement.
