National Information Technology Committee and the National Electronics and Computer Technology Centre, IT2000: Thailand National IT Policy (Feb. 1996).
In February 1996, the first Thai National IT Policy, called IT2000, was announced by the NITC and endorsed by the Cabinet. IT2000 put forward the vision for the country to properly exploit IT to achieve economic prosperity and social equity.
To this end, the policy emphasized three common development agendas, i.e., (i) to build an equitable national information infrastructure (NII), (ii) to invest in people to accelerate the supply of IT manpower and to develop an IT-literate work-force, and (iii) to achieve good governance through the use of IT in delivering public services and in government administration.
