Thailand’s Ministry of Digital Affairs has been keen to accelerate the implementation of projects to organise communication lines in the different areas of the major cities in the region, such as Chiang Mai, Nong Khai.

The Ministry, through the National Telecommunications Public Company Limited, a Thai state-owned telecommunications company operates a project in various provinces to promote tourism and improve the road landscape in Udon Dutsadi and Nong Khai Municipality.

Recently, the Minister of Digital Economy and Society (DES), Chaiwut Thanakmanusorn, visited the provinces of Udon Thani and Nong Khai to assess the state of communication lines that had been reported to be experiencing communication issues.

Minister Chaiwut wants to ensure the relevant integration works to solve such problems immediately and to organise the communication lines to have a beautiful view and safe for the lives and property of the residents.

The Minister said that all lines that go through the mess will be put underground by 2023, which is run by the company National Telecommunications Public Company Limited and telecommunication service providers, whose mobile operators will rent underground pipes to connect with each other. He acknowledged that there are a lot of projects and plans for the provinces and to their residents.

Meanwhile, Minister Chaiwut is confident that start-up companies will be an important force in bringing digital technology to create a business – a new, modern service that generates income to support the country’s economic growth in response to the Thailand 4.0 policy.

He emphasised that start-ups are what the government encourages because he believes it is the cornerstone of the future economy as the new generation is doing modern business to adopt digital technology. This could lead to good opportunities in the country and generate income for both entrepreneurs including making the economy grow.

The nation’s Digital GDP is to be driven by at least 30% of all industries within the next 5 years. Hence, the Ministry of Digital the Digital Economy Promotion Agency has continuously promoted and encouraged enterprises to start applying technology and digital innovations in their business operations through various driving measures.

Particularly, the initiatives or financial aid for creating digital enterprises that promote and support partnerships with digital start-ups to implement digital technologies.

In addition, Dr Nattapon Natthasomboon, Deputy Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Digital Economy and Society hosted the recently held meeting of the ASEAN Joint Working Group on Digital.

The meeting was organised to discuss driving the key outcomes of other relevant ASEAN framework meetings; monitoring of the implementation of the ASEAN Digital Master Plan 2025 and the consideration of detailed project proposals for implementation in 2023, which has given importance to accelerating the development of the digital economy.

Furthermore, Noppawan Chaiyamun, spokesman for the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society for Political Affairs announced a mobile application that will allow people to access government services easily.

It also includes water and electricity bills that can be paid via QR code. The mobile app is regarded as the centre for governmental services that are intended to benefit the public.
