August 30, 2018

Ms. Pornpongsaroj is currently involved in a number of business enterprises such as a Business Development Manager in the polymer industry and Project Consultant in the agricultural sector. She received a M.A. in Economics from Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok. She is passionate about helping people reach their full potential through learning and development. Her greatest aim is to generate opportunities through implementation of projects in areas of sustainable development and digital platforms, including clean energy policy. There is a movement in Thailand to adopt more green technologies with environmentally-friendly cars and a push to improve infrastructure for public transportation and the private sector. However, the current business environment in Thailand is not favorable for the production and sales of electric vehicles (EVs) due to their high prices and insufficient EV related infrastructure. Ms. Pornpongsaroj is interested to play an active role in the partnership between the government and the private sector to further initiate national policy.
