Transport Ministry to Cut Costs Via Email
January 15, 2001
The Transport and Communications Ministry will begin using email to distribute notices to the 40 agencies under its jurisdiction next month to save on the cost of paper.
The ministry uses about 10,800 pages of paper each month sending out notices, a source said.
The scheme would use the Internet and the ministry's own network.
Orders would also be circulated to senior ministry officials via email, once the electronic signature bill now before the Senate is passed into law.
The ministry is also developing an electronic library and software for the management and handling of hazardous substances.
A Thai-language database of all chemicals used in Thailand is to be stored on compact disks and widely distributed.
In case of an accident, the information would help identify the chemicals and provide advice on how to handle them safely.
