Thai Chamber of Commerce Chairman Pongsak Assakul, an NACN commissioner, said that the NACN has its hands full reviewing the large number of complaints that have come in.

He said that the network is now focusing on the government’s rice pledging scheme, in which, he said, “there will certainly be corruption”.

In addition, the NACN is working with other various organisations to educate children aged from three to eight about ending corruption.

New Paths Retreat

The organisation expects the topic to be included in the curriculum of 840 schools nationwide.

Pongsak added that there are now 32 national-level anti corruption agencies working closely with the NACN. Just recently, the Auditor General’s Office and Thai Transparency joined the network. – TAN
