He told Russian colleagues that in Thailand also has a large science Park in the town Rangsit not far from Bangkok, and that it was originally developed for a totally different scheme than SKOLKOVO.

“Twenty years ago, when the Science Park was established Rangsit, he worked as a purely public institution in which public money has been innovative work on the state order. However, ten years ago, we changed the concept. Now, as SKOLKOVO, we opened the doors of the Park for private business, invited large private companies,” said Thai Minister.
