German Initiative “Technology Dialog Solutions on Sustainable Water Management and Flood Prevention for the Kingdom of Thailand”
On the occasion of the visit Dr. Philipp Roesler, Vice Chancelor and German Minister of Economics and Technology, to Thailand on 20st September Dorsch Consult Asia Co., Ltd. presented its ideas of efficient flood prevention in Thailand and the important role of the implementation of controlled land use planning. From the Thai Government side the Foreign Minister Dr. Surapong Tovichakchaikul presented the opening speech.
Last year, Thailand suffered disastrous flooding which caused major damage to the economy.
Germany is also a regular victim of severe flooding. As a result, German industry has developed a variety of strategies and solutions to recognise and prevent flooding from happening at an early stage. These solutions “Made in Germany” can also be of great benefit to Thailand.
The Dialogue provides a broad forum for discussion of all aspects of water and flood management.
On the day before the Technology Symposium Dr. Philipp Roesler and Deputy Prime Minister / Minister of Finance signed a MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING ON A STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP IN THE FIELD OF DISASTER MANAGEMENT BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY AND THE GOVERNMENT OF THE KINGDOM OF THAILAND.
