4 APRIL 2019, SAMUT SAKHON – With technology playing a significant role in people’s daily lives, it’s important to not only understand it but know how to use it safely and appropriately. To help improve the lives of people in the communities where we operate, Thai Union subsidiary Asian Pacific Can Company Limited (APC), a producer of steel and aluminum food packaging products, in collaboration with the Office of Non-formal and Informal Education in Tarsrai Sub-district, held a digital literacy workshop for people in Samut Sakhon.

Participants were given a demonstration on how to use digital technology responsibly by Krit Jankham, Asian Pacific Can’s manager for information technology. Nearly 30 people attended the workshop, learning the fundamentals of using digital technology, guidelines for using social media, media literacy, communication in the digital era as well as digital law and digital health.

Somsak Smittiset, Asian Pacific Can’s managing director said that “Today digital technology has come to influence the lives of everyone. We need to encourage people and those in the communities in which we operate to understand digital technology and create awareness of the dangers of social media so they can use it appropriately and responsibly. We hope this workshop benefited the people in the community and they can apply what they learned in their daily lives.”
