Swasdee krub,

A very good morning to you all. Welcome to the inaugural Bangkok FinTech Fair and welcome to the Bank of Thailand Learning Center. This Learning Center was first opened to the public in December of last year. It is not only Bangkok's newest learning center and public library but also an open space for individuals and entrepreneurs to collaborate and exchange ideas. So, it is fitting that our very first Bangkok FinTech Fair is held at this venue.
