Open and Innovative Government in Thailand

Seminar for Fostering Innovative Future

The new way of public management has supported the governments in actualizing the public services and achieving the expected outcomes. Nevertheless, the world has changed into the digital age enabling the people to monitor the governments’ performances more closely.
