On July 18, 2022, at 08.30 hours, the Deputy Permanent Secretary of Labour, Mrs. Bubpha Phanpeng, presided over the opening ceremony of the project to support and build people’s participation in anti-corruption efforts “Labour Eyes.” Assistant to the Permanent Secretary of Labour, Mr. Samat Pattamasukon, participated in the project’s opening ceremony at the Chada Grand Ballroom, 2nd floor, Bangkok Chada Hotel, Bangkok. The Deputy Permanent Secretary of Labour said that the 20-year national strategy had established strategic issues for balancing and developing the government management system, which has set anti-corruption as a national agenda under the “Zero Tolerance & Clean Thailand” vision. It aims to accelerate efforts and consolidate the participation of people’s networks in preventing all forms of corruption. The Ministry of Labour is determined to develop cooperation between the government and people’s sectors to create an anti-corruption culture, cultivate the values of good morals, and build confidence in the Ministry of Labour’s operations, where the people take into account the interests of the nation before their own benefits. It aims to promote and encourage government officials, the general public, and network partners to continuously cooperate in fraud prevention through the training mechanism. It also aims to build a body of knowledge, develop skills, and spread awareness, expanding anti-corruption networks at the community level. The objective is that everyone is like the “eyes” of the Ministry of Labour, which is important in surveillance, whistle-blowing, providing information, and participating in the effective investigation of government agencies’ operations, working together to create a new national goal against corruption.
The Deputy Permanent Secretary of Labour added that the Ministry of Labour is open to listening to opinions from stakeholders and sharing information with the public to improve work processes for efficiency and to truly meet the needs of the people. It aims to create a society that does not tolerate corruption and put an end to corruption in Thai society. She said that she hopes that today’s training will encourage all trainees to become aware and join the fight against corruption in all its forms. She thanked the lecturers, government network partners, especially the network of volunteer workers, and the network of people in the central and eastern regions across 25 provinces, who have provided their dedication and sacrificed their time to attend the training and join the anti-corruption network together with the Ministry of Labour.
