Thailand’s Ministry of Digital Economy and Society organized the 10th KM Forum on the topic, “Blockchain in Enterprise and Government” on July 25th, 2019 at Centara Government Complex Hotel in Bangkok, with the objective of driving further blockchain adoption in the area of public administration.

Promoting Distributed Ledger Technology for State Agencies

Kanungnij Kodchasila, Inspector General of the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society, presided over the opening ceremony. She said at the event that blockchain platforms are a more efficient and transparent tool for tracking and verifying data.

Moreover, DLT has the potential to enhance various processes of government bureaucracy. The seminar had therefore been organized to educate and inspire state officials to implement this emerging technology.

Thai Government Driving Blockchain Technology Usage

Meanwhile, Thailand’s Digital Government Development Agency (DGA) has revealed at a blockchain conference held earlier this year in Bangkok that several agencies in the public sector are studying use cases for blockchain in order to implement the technology in areas like data management and traceability.

Dr. Montha Chayakornvikrom of the Innovation Department at the DGA said that government agencies are keen to adopt DLT to enhance transparency, eliminate duplication of work, and allow different organizations to share information.

“The public sector is keen to explore the use of blockchain and is looking forward to adopting blockchain for government administration,” said Dr. Montha. “Worldwide, governments in over 30 countries have already started using blockchain.”
