Industry 4.0: Opportunities for Thailand and Australia

While visiting Thailand, David Chuter sat down with representatives of the Australian Embassy in Bangkok to discuss Industry 4.0.

Explaining the benefits of Industry 4.0 for both Thai and Australian manufacturing businesses, David also highlights the importance of taking a much wider approach. Yes, Industry 4.0 is about digital technologies but it also touches topics such as the future of work, and what work skills future generations will required in the workplace.

David sees opportunities, both in Australia and Thailand, for advanced manufacturing technologies to find a home in other industries such as the building, agribusiness, mining, medtech and pharma sectors. And this is where the breath of manufacturing becomes extremely wide and broad, with Industry 4.0 opportunties in sectors currently not considered.
