For decades, advances in information technology have enhanced lives and economics around the world. Attempting to ride this wave, Thailand has worked since the late 1980s to develop a nationwide IT infrastructure that could serve government and the private sector. In 2002, dissatisfied with the limited success of earlier efforts, Thailand's current government established the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), charged with developing and supporting completely electronic processes for government, commerce, industry, and education. The new ICT policies aim to bring IT to bear on every aspect of Thai society and, ultimately, transform the economy.
