General Prayuth Chan o-cha, the Prime Minister of Thailand has announced the Digital Government Plan 2017-2021.

The government aims to develop digital capabilities within all sectors, including agriculture, tourism, education, the medical profession, investment, disaster prevention, and public administration, in order to drive economic and social progress. 

To achieve this objective, digital technologies need to be incorporated into public services. 

An integrated information network will be developed co-operatively by government agencies, with a focus on four key development models, namely Government Integration, Smart Operations, Citizen-Centric Services, and Driven Transformation.

According to the plan, within the next five years, the government will be transformed into Digital Government backed by the integration of operations and management among various government agencies. 

Smart technology and services will be fostered by a citizen-centric strategy aiming to accelerate Thailand in all aspects, both substantially and practically. 

The target goals of Digital Government are:

To achieve these goals, five development strategies have been delineated: 

The Electronic Government agency of Thailand has developed monitoring measures to ensure that implementation is done as planned. 

  • Smart Service – The concept was to reduce the use of paper-based documents. The most remarkable example was the Application Programming Interface (API, developed by the Provincial Waterworks Authority (PWA), which seamlessly connected public information and the service system 
  • Government Smart Kiosk– These would share verified information, related to public services, such as household registration and medical care certification, with the public. Access is based on an individual’s ID card 
  • Biz Portal – This is a centralised search engine to facilitate the work of business entrepreneurs and investors via the website anywhere and at any time. 
  • Farmer One – This portal provides information on land utilisation, land tenure, and other beneficial details related to the agricultural sector and responsible agencies 
  • Thailand Digital Government Academy (TDGA) – The academy was established, in collaboration with the OCSC, to promote development of digital knowledge of government authorities and public officials
