E-governance making progress in Thailand

Bangkok: Within the next five years, more than 80% of Thailand’s government offices will use e-documents for identification in the country.

The government will also set up a Big Data, Data Centre and Analytics Centre to support the Thailand 4.0 vision.

Sak Segkhoonthod, president of the Electronic Government Agency, said that the five-year Digital Government project started in 2016 and will end in 2021.

The Digital Government project or e-government project expects that within five years, over 80% of government agencies will not ask for a duplicate document from people who come to the government offices.

He said the government will also provide one-stop services in order to create convenience for people as a whole such as business portal services in order to provide business registration from websites, e-tax services and citizen portals to support digital identification or digital ID in the country.

The digital ID will be provided to the public next year. It will allow the people to make transactions with the government and private sectors with high security and safety. — The Nation/Asia News Network
