Thai and Polish medical technology entrepreneurs on Tuesday posed for a lively group photo with Polish ambassador, Artur Dmochowski (centre with glasses), and Wiwat Hemmondharop, Vice Chairman of the Federation of Thai Industries, to his left, just before the much-anticipated seminar. Captured by Poramet Tangsathaporn, the photo radiated a sense of unity and excitement about future prospects.

In recent years, Thailand and Poland have enjoyed robust trade ties, but there’s a growing consensus that it’s time to take this partnership to the next level. In his opening remarks at the seminar in Bangkok, Polish ambassador Artur Dmochowski emphasized the potential for further strengthening business cooperation, particularly through medical technology investment. “Our nations already share a strong bond, but the world of medical technology offers endless possibilities for deeper economic, commercial, and technological collaboration,” he proclaimed.

Dmochowski lauded Thailand’s healthcare system, recognizing it as one of the world’s finest, and a premiere destination for medical tourism. “Medical tourists flock to Thailand for its top-notch healthcare services, and this creates a fertile ground for collaboration. Poland, on the other hand, boasts a rapidly growing medical sector, staffed by highly skilled professionals and marked by low labor costs,” he noted. He argued that the strategic geographical positions of Thailand in Southeast Asia and Poland in central Europe provide unique advantages for this collaboration.

The ambassador was optimistic, “I see this as a golden opportunity for both sides to reinforce our already good relations and expand our economic cooperation,” he added, heartily.

Echoing Dmochowski’s sentiments, Wiwat Hemmondharop, vice chairman of the Federation of Thai Industries, spotlighted the importance of the medical sector. “Healthcare clusters rank among the 46 main industries that we are focusing on,” he pointed out. “While Europe, and Poland in particular, are renowned for their advanced medical technology, Thailand boasts some of the best hospitals and highly efficient healthcare personnel. This makes our countries natural partners.”

Wiwat proposed that these strengths could propel Thailand to become a hub of medical technology for ASEAN countries. He cited the surging demand for electric vehicles and the resultant transformation in the automobile industry as a parallel. “Nearly a million workers in the internal combustion (IC) car manufacturing sector are at risk of unemployment due to this shift,” he warned. Consequently, the Federation of Thai Industries is urging automobile factories to pivot towards medical technology and equipment manufacturing instead.

“We extend a warm welcome to Polish investors, especially those in the high-technology medical sector. There is so much we can achieve together through knowledge exchange and long-term cooperation,” Wiwat enthused.

The event highlights don’t end there. Polish Medical Technologies will be on full display at the eagerly awaited Medlab Asia & Asia Health 2024, kicking off today until July 12 at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center. This showcase promises to be a melting pot of innovation, setting the stage for future collaboration and advancements in the medical technology field between these two dynamic nations.

      Absolutely! Thailand’s medical tourism industry is already booming, and partnering with Poland might help reduce costs even further while improving technology.

      • grower134 July 10, 2024

        That’s true, but what about focusing on improving public healthcare within Poland first? Seems a bit opportunistic.

      • Anna Lee July 10, 2024

        Yes, there’s a balance to be struck. However, international collaborations can lead to advancements that benefit both countries’ healthcare systems.

  2. David K. July 10, 2024

    Sounds like another corporate-driven initiative. Are they really thinking of the people, or just profits?

    • TulipLover72 July 10, 2024

      Isn’t every partnership driven by profit at the end of the day? As long as there’s innovation and job creation, it benefits everyone.

    • Nina R. July 10, 2024

      True, but there’s a difference between ethical profit and exploitation. We need to watch these deals closely.

    • David K. July 10, 2024

      Exactly. Oversight will be key. We cannot allow unchecked corporate gain at the expense of healthcare quality.

  3. Sara Y. July 10, 2024

    Medical technology is great, but are they considering the environmental impact of shifting automobile factories to medical equipment manufacturing?

    • EcoGeek July 10, 2024

      Good point! Transitioning industries always has an environmental cost. They should have stringent eco-friendly guidelines.

      • Sara Y. July 10, 2024

        Indeed! It’s crucial, especially with the global climate crisis, to ensure that this transition is as green as possible.

  4. Tom July 10, 2024

    Why Poland and Thailand? Aren’t there other countries with more advanced medical technology?

    • Karol W. July 10, 2024

      It’s about strategic positioning too. Poland in Europe and Thailand in Southeast Asia create a global network that’s beneficial for both.

    • Sara July 10, 2024

      And it’s not just about who has the ‘most advanced’. It’s about complementary strengths and opportunities.

    • Tom July 10, 2024

      Alright, fair enough. I just hope they can really make it work.

  5. John Smith July 10, 2024

    • Prof. Miller July 10, 2024

      I expect advancements in telemedicine, wearable health tech, and AI-driven diagnostics. Both nations have much to offer.

  8. Olivia July 10, 2024

    Don’t forget the cultural differences. These can either weaken or strengthen partnership outcomes.

  9. Larry D July 10, 2024

    Interesting to see automobile factories pivoting towards medical tech. Could be a lifesaver for those workers facing unemployment.

    • Jason24 July 10, 2024

      Definitely. But re-training those workers is going to be a huge challenge.

    • Larry D July 10, 2024

      True, but with the right programs, it’s possible. It could open up new opportunities for the workforce.

  10. Grower134 July 10, 2024

    Concerned about the long-term sustainability of such partnerships. What guarantees are there for continued success?

  11. Ben July 10, 2024
