The two sides have deepened cooperation in innovative areas such as digital economy and e-commerce, showing sufficient resilience and wide space. This year, China will implement the "14th Five-Year Plan", accelerate the construction of a new development paradigm with domestic circulation as the mainstay and domestic and international circulations reinforcing each other, deepen reform and opening up, and promote high-quality Belt and Road cooperation.

With the theme of "Resilience Strategy: Building a Thailand Innovation and Investment Center", this forum aims to further upgrade the level of China-Thailand investment cooperation and encourage more Chinese enterprises to invest in Thailand. The forum has set up policy interpretation, experience sharing, thematic discussion, enterprise Q&A and other sessions to help enterprises understand Thailand's investment support policies.
