Kingdom's competitiveness on the rise




Kingdom's competitiveness on the rise

The competitiveness of the Kingdom keeps growing, climbing two places on this year's World Economic Forum (WEF) global competitive index 4.0, scoring 67.5% compared to 66% last year.


The global competitiveness index (GCI) 4.0 measures national competitiveness - defined as the set of institutions, policies and factors that determine the level of productivity - and captures determinants of long-term economic growth on a scale from one to 100.


The section where Thailand ranked highest with a 14th place was its financial system, thanks to its availability for capital, credit services, variety of financial products, financial risk diversification system, financing of SMEs, financial support for start-ups, and the soundness of its banks.


Strong accessibility of the country's market for both domestic and foreign companies which has boosted domestic consumption, investment and exports leads to an 18th place for market size.


Thailand should invest in improving its product market (92nd), labour market (44th) and education and skills development (66th) to continue increasing its ranking on the GCI.


On the Asia list the Kingdom ranked 6th out of 12 countries after Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and China.

72% of Thai graduates could lose jobs to AI by 2030



By 2030, 72% of university graduates could be either unemployed or working at jobs that do not require a bachelor's degree. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robots are the main threats to employment for Thailand’s young people, according to the country’s Deputy Minister for Education Udom Kachinthorn.


Digital transformation is redefining the ways in which people work, live and learn. According to Mr. Udom Kachinthorn "Some jobs will disappear, others will grow, and jobs that don't even exist today could become commonplace." 

The skills most requested by employers will include cognitive skills like problem solving, critical thinking, analysis and creative work.


Quoting a report on youth unemployment released by the World Bank earlier this year, Mr Udom stated, "Thus, if Thai universities do not adapt and cannot build a workforce with future-proof skills, the country may have to cope with largest ever rate of unemployment." 


He warned that universities and teachers must embrace change by using digital technology to make their classes and content more lively, relevant and responsive to the demands and lifestyles of a new generation.


“The universities of the future must teach students how to become learners. Schools and universities must change from being just classrooms to becoming learning spaces. Teachers must assume new roles as coaches who provide guidance, not only give lectures," he explained.
