“Bombardier remains fully committed to developing local talent in Thailand, as reflected in this prestigious agreement with Mahidol University. … we place a high emphasis on deepening our academic partnerships to ensure the development of technical expertise and innovation in the industry,” Gregory Enjalbert, Vice President Rail Control Solutions Asia Pacific and Managing Director Thailand, Bombardier Transportation, said.
