Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and Cabinet members will visit Chiang Mai on Wednesday to check in on various government projects.
Government spokesperson Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana said the officials will inspect progress on initiatives in the region, including tunnels transferring water to and from Mae Ngat Somboon Chon Dam to address the area’s depleting water supply amid industrial, tourism and population growth.
Prayut then will preside over the opening of the FTI Expo 2022: Shaping the Future Industry event, which will take place from June 29 to July 3.
On Wednesday afternoon, the premier will travel to observe the coding school excellence center program at Wat Weruwan School, which offers students education in coding and digital innovation.
The program was initiated by the Digital Economy Promotion Agency and related agencies to improve students’ skills and make them experts in digital technology.
Prayut also will visit the province’s Mae Hia Subdistrict to inspect the digital transformation taking place in local administration, which has led to more efficient management and better public services for the local community.
