BANGKOK, 9th February 2018 (NNT) – The Prime Minister, Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha, has urged government agencies to operate with transparency, in a move to raise people's confidence and positive perception of the state sector. 

Gen. Prayut presided over a ceremony to present awards to government agencies with excellent financial practices. In this event, a total of 22 agencies received 24 awards. 

The Prime Minister congratulated the winners and called on all government agencies to be prepared and and adapt to social changes. He said the agencies have to respect the law and move together with a proper checks-and-balances mechanism. 

Regarding the Thai Niyom (Thai-ism) campaign, the Prime Minister said the projects in this campaign should focus on providing training courses and capability enhancement to low-income earners, which would require teams of government officials to learn more about villagers in areas across the country.

 

He said the projects would then drive forward local development, answering the needs of the local people.

Which would require teams of government officials to stand over and spy on people in the poor villages, to make sure they cooperate with the new "thai ism" indoctrination.

The PM gives himself yet another media opportunity and makes a big thing of 22 agencies receiving awards for excellent financial practices.

Does that imply the other 100,000+ government agencies (excluding local government agencies) were not worthy of such an award?

I suspect that the word "transparent" has a different meaning in Thai?

 

Or that "transparency" is measured on an escalating scale: more transparency for red-shirts, less for others?

True - transparency either applies to all or none. 

 

But as usual here, it's always do as we say, following our rules, which of course don't apply to us!

Conundrum how to get to frosty opaque with blinkers from total blackout with the current shining examples would be the place to start.

The same indoctrination started in the 1930's
