THE Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) of Thailand agreed to work together in eight areas--medical science, food processing, innovative agriculture, electronics and computer, nanotechnology, space technology, innovative startup, and metrology.
The collaboration was fleshed out when Science Secretary Fortunato T. de la Peña, along with the Philippine delegation, met with MOST Minister Atchaka Sibunruang and her heads of agencies during a ministerial meeting in Bangkok, Thailand last month.
The partnership was cemented last March 31 when the Philippines signed a memorandum of agreement with the Kingdom of Thailand.
Details on the implementation of the partnership are currently being forged by working committees. (PR)
