BANGKOK, (NNT) – The Electronic Government Agency (Public Organization) (EGA) is undertaking a roadshow in Chiang Mai to raise people’s awareness of the soon-to-be-realized digital society.
Chairing the opening ceremony of the “Gov Channel Roadshow 2017: Digital Local Government” event, the Minister of the Digital Economy and Society, Pichet Durongkaveroj said the aim of the roadshow was to inform local governments and the public of the “Thailand 4.0” policy which seeks to turn the nation into a digital economy where most government and business transactions are carried out via digital platforms.
Serving as a model digital city, Chiang Mai was the first province to be introduced to Government Smart kiosks. The machines give members of the public with smart cards (national ID cards) access to information in regard to their healthcare and other social welfare privileges.
The kiosks can be found at Big C Extra branches.
