National Innovation Agency (Public Organization) or NIA has developed a conceptual framework "Innovation Diplomacy", based on the strategic cooperation with innovative organizations worldwide. The mission is to enhance National Innovation System (NIS) of Thailand to international level, as well as to promote the image of Thailand to become "Innovation Nation".

Innovation and Diplomacy, the two words that could be allied so well for the global affairs in the 21st Century. Innovation Diplomacy focuses more on the commercialization of innovation rather than mainly focus in R&D, therefore, Innovation Diplomacy is another solution to creating significant economic impacts while strengthening international relations at the same time. NIA under the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation (MHESI) of Thailand provides the pathway to success for those aims by bringing more and more international partners to work with related Thai public and private sectors as Thailand is now growing extensively and sustainably.
