Office of Public Sector Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) Secretary-General Prayong Priyajit along with Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong signed the MoU to facilitate citizens in accessing government services and reducing the opportunity for corruption in order to drive Phuket’s government to a “Smart Government”.

The MoU supports the Licensing Facilitation Act of Thailand, issued in 2015, which requires government offices to disclose the procedures, requirements and deadlines for the granting of all licenses, permits, registrations and notifications by government offices that are required prior to establishment and operation of a business.

“Phuket is one of the two cities (the other Bangkok) which the government has decided to steer towards being a Smart City, with an emphasis on technology being used to serve the people,” Governor Norraphat said.

“The highest consideration is the safety of life and property of the people and tourists, so we have a policy to propel Phuket into an international tourist destination based on sustainable development.”

“Phuket will fight against any corruption in any form, which cannot happen anymore anywhere in Phuket.”

“Every government officer has to work under good governance focusing on honesty to serve both locals and tourists’ convenience and reduce lateness of service by using more information technology to serve all citizens,” he added.

PACC Secretary-General Prayong stated that Phuket is just a small province but has high potential because Phuket is a famous destination for foreigners.

“If government officers commit any corruption, Phuket’s reputation will suffer widely around the world; therefore, if all government officers work under good governance, it can ensure a good reputation of Phuket to show people around the world,” said Mr Prayong.

“Phuket Smart City is the first city that cooperates with the PACC to develop Phuket’s government into a Smart Government to support investment, startup businesses, SME operators and people who want to use government services with no undue delays and without any corruption.

“People should look out and inform us for any clues of corruption,” Mr Prayong added.

Boy...now this is one of the bigger pieces of blah-di-blah to hit the news lately. Alas, we all know that this is utterly meaningless, as Phuket runs on corruption from the top down.  Funny how there isn't even one mention of the police, who are at the roots of corruption.  Tea money, fleecing tourists, turning the blind eye to jet skis and taxi mafia...on and on, ad nauseum.  So let's see something happen..start with all the illegal taxi/tuktuk parking in Patong...clear it out and patrol it...get harsh.  And jet skis are illegal... do something about it.  But as we all know, as Kurt mentioned, this is nothing more than toothless rhetoric, as the people that need to enforce the rules are the most corrupt and exactly the root of the problem.  Please prove me wrong, do something that actually makes a desperately needed change.

A fantastic first thai anti-bribery MoU.
However the venom is in the tale:..."People should look out and inform us for any clues of corruption"...
That now is exactly the duty/obligation/job of the parties who did sign this Memorandum!
Sitting in arm chair and just wait for the 'people' makes this Memorandum toothless.

Phuket Smart City authorities should make Patong a 'test project' to fight any corruption, by the authorities. 
No need of the help of the 'people'.

As long as the total illegal jet ski opera on Phuket is going on, I say: First see, than believe.
With this MoU in the hand Phuket authorities can show they are Serious in fighting corruption. 
When the jet skies are gone, than the 'people' believe the authorities intentions.
