The Thai Corporate Counsel Association (Thai-CCA) in collaboration with regional law firm Tilleke & Gibbins held its first event of the year on 24 January, delving into the expanding field of AI and technology law in Southeast Asia.

Further emphasising the critical importance of technology in Thailand’s economic landscape, Segkhoonthod also encouraged current legal experts to take a proactive role in crafting the regulations that oversee AI.
