Two municipalities on the island were even recognised for their transparency in government operations.
Local Phuket government organisations announced their intention to oppose corruption at an event held at Phuket Provincial Hall led by Phuket Vice Governor Phichet Panaphong, joined by Provincial Chief Public Prosecutor Tawan Sukanyiran and Suksan Prasarn-Ae, Director of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) office in Phuket.
At the event, Phuket City Municipality and Wichit Municipality were both granted certificates issued by the NACC recognising their efforts to maintain transparency in conducting government operations.
Phuket City Mayor Somjai Suwansupana was present to receive the certificate on behalf of Phuket City Municipality.
“All government organisations are urged to keep being good people and [operate] good government on the matters of morality and ethics, integrity, transparency, principles and the government regulations, which are important by focusing on the results of the work that everything can be verified properly in accordance with the government regulations,” Vice Governor Phichet said.
