OrBorJor wins “transparency’ award

PHUKET: The Phuket Provincial Administration Organization (OrBorJor) is one of only two OrBorJor in the country to win an award from the King Prajadhipok Institute, which monitors the progress of democracy in Thailand, for its “transparent” practices.

Senate President Suchon Chaleekrae handed the award to Phuket OrBorJor President Anchalee Vanich-Thepabutr at the Rama Gardens Hotel in Bangkok on Monday.

OrBorJor Vice-President Sutin Uthaitamrong said today that the OrBorJor won the award because it practiced transparent processes and involved local people in the development and implementation of its policies.

“For example, when we need to buy or hire a contractor for any project of more than 2 million baht, we use e-auctions, in line with central government policy,” he said.

“In addition, local people are involved in OrBorJor projects,” K. Sutin added. “For example, people can volunteer to help with our beach guard project to help improve tourists’ safety. So far, we have already saved many tourists from dangerous situations on the beach, such as drowning.”

The only other OrBorJor to win the award this year was just south of Phuket, in Trang.
