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.
