Deputy PM pushes support for e-Gov in Phuket 




PHUKET: Deputy Prime Minister Air Chief Marshal Prajin Janthong arrived in Phuket yesterday (June 9) to promote a roadshow highlighting the government’s move towards providing cloud-based e-services.

At the public launched for the “Gov Channel Roadshow 2017: Digital Local Government”, held at the Novotel Phuket Phokeethra hotel in Phuket Town, ACM Prajin said, “Phuket as a Smart City is to be a role model for other provinces, with technological infrastructure developed to make people’s digital lives easier.”


The aim of the policy is to drive faster, modern government services to support the people, he said.


“The government has ordered the Electronic Government Agency (EGA) to integrate modern innovation and technology through its Gov Channel project (click here) to create ‘Phuket: Digital Local Government’ with 5Es – e-society, e-learning, e-citizen, e-education and e-commerce,” ACM Prajin said.


“Developing human resources is very important to drive the country into Thailand 4.0. The government is striving to see equality among the people so everyone can access government services to make their lives better and easier,” he added.


Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong pointed out that the EGA is rolling out the support structure necessary for government officials to more effectively perform their duties to serve the public.


“Among the services being provided is the GIN (Government Information Network) supported by the G-Cloud infrastructure, with high-level security. There is also the Mail Go Thai email srevice and G-Chat, which government offices can use to communicate with each other,” he noted.
