Chonburi is working harder to get the word out about how it’s spending taxpayers’ money.
Following a January dictate by the government to explain to the public how budgets supplied by various ministries are spent, Chonburi Deputy Gov. Chamnanwit Taerat organized a meeting April 1 to assign agencies to publicize what the local government is doing for the public with public money.

The province is documenting its progress on publicly funded projects and has tasked the Public Relations Office and Information Operations Center for Public Relations to lead the campaign.
Twenty-one agencies will report their progress to the public-relations agencies so the public better understands what government is doing for them, Chamnanwit said.
