Mr. Theerathada is Chief Corporate Affairs Officer with DTAC where he is responsible for legal/general counsel, regulatory, policy, governance, government relations, ethics and compliance, communications and sustainability. He earned his B.A. in Political Science from the University of North Carolina in the United States. In his short tenure with DTAC Mr. Theerathada has created a legal and policy governance division and developed a public-private partnership connecting entrepreneurs and SMEs through a MOU with the Ministries of Commerce, Digital Economy and Society, Agriculture, and Education. In order to be part of, and to keep up with, a global digital economy, Thailand needs to look at itself realistically and rethink the legal and governance frameworks. The Thai people are more informed than ever thanks to social media, allowing them real-time global access to social change, and it is inevitable that they will openly compare and contrast their own situation to that of others. Mr. Theerathada feels that open communications and debate must lead to the development of a dynamic legal foundation where rule of law becomes more representational, benefitting the greater good, not just a few elites.
