Key recommendations

The government could develop more detailed guidance for officials considered at risk of conflict-of-interest situations, and further expand the scope of its asset declaration system to public officials that are considered at risk of corruption.
Thailand should consider developing an online disclosure system to facilitate the submission, verification and audit, and subsequent publication of asset declarations.
To foster a culture of public integrity. Thailand could increase awareness of the Code of Professional Ethics for Civil Servants by developing an in-depth training programme, and introduce a dedicated whistleblower protection law to facilitate reporting of suspected integrity violations.
