The EGA will work with CAT Telecom to invest in telepresence services and mobile telepresence unit. CAT will invest in setting up these facilities, while the EGA will attract customers for the services.

This year, the EGA aims to have ten customers including Government House, the Parliament, the Government Centre, the Public Health Ministry and the Commerce Ministry.

“Currently, we offer Web-conference services for government offices in thirty three districts in thres provinces in the South of Thailand. The service is aimed at making it unnecessary for officials to travel to attend regular meetings,” Segkhoonthod added.
