Interior Minister Gen Anupong Paochinda said two projects that the ministry had proposed to the Cabinet had been approved, reported state news agency NNT.

The two projects are:

1. The local volunteers for underprivileged elders project, to be carried out with a budget of B1.08 billion for 12 months. Local administrative organisations in each province will hire 15,548 local people to take care of elderly persons in their communities.

Each will be paid a salary of B5,000 per month.

The project is expected to run from July 2020 to September 2021 and should also help provide skills training for those who wish to work in a healthcare-related field in the future.

2. The Tambon smart team project, which is aimed at hiring local staff to collect census data for the ministry’s integrated database system, has a budget of B2.7 billion and will also last 12 months.

The Department of Provincial Administration will hire two members of staff for each subdistrict to carry out the task, totaling 14,510 candidates. Each person will be paid a salary of B15,000 per month.

The project is expected to run from August 2020 to October 2021. This will create an effective integrated database for area development planning at all levels, and stimulate consumption in the household sector as well.

The Minister of the Interior added that he had instructed all relevant agencies to undertake the projects in a transparent manner to ensure efficient usage of the budget allotted for these projects, and be of maximum benefit for the people.
