Enhancing Digital Government Capacity for Local Government Officials

KAS-COLA Workshop

In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, it is more important than ever for the local administrative organisations in Thailand to deliver the public services efficiently for the benefits of the citizens. Besides, to achieve the key objective of the good governance, the policy formulation and implementation have to involve the citizens in the process. The questions are how well the local governments connect to the people in the areas and how responsive the public services can be in this challenging time.
