Minister of Social Development and Human Security Juti Krairiksh has led a group of executives and officials at the ministry to declare a fight against corruption, marking the 2020 United Nations International Anti-Corruption Day, 9 December.
The declaration was made under the theme “Transparency Ministry of Social Development and Human Security” to raise the anti-corruption awareness of all officials and provide them with guidance for their operations in accordance with the ministry’s anti-corruption declaration.
In this event, Mr. Juti said that officials at the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security also showed their intention to adopt the royal message given by His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Phra Vajiraklaochaoyuhua on the occasion of Thailand’s Civil Servants’ Day, 1 April 2020.
In the royal message, His Majesty the King explained that officials need to have three kinds of knowledge. The first one is proper technical knowledge that is accurate, in-depth, and wide-ranging. The second kind is practical knowledge in performing their duties. The third one involves critical-thinking knowledge that is rational, theoretical, and moral. All officials should develop and accumulate the three kinds of knowledge, not lacking in any part. In doing so, they will be able to achieve their performance for the benefit of the country and the people.
Mr. Juti pointed out that officials must not tolerate any form of corruption. They must not use their positions to seek personal gain, and their operations must be transparent and accountable, with top priority to national interests.
He said that the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security was determined to solve the corruption problem on a continual basis and to raise awareness of fighting corruption under the concept of “Zero Tolerance.”
