Speeches Shim

Recognizing the numerous opportunities for and challenges to democracy in Thailand, USAID has committed to working with civil society, the media, and independent agencies to strengthen government transparency and accountability, and bring together citizens and government to build a more fair and just society. USAID works to build key skill sets within civil society organizations in Thailand, emphasizing the need to develop cooperative relationships with agencies of the Royal Thai Government. This important work supports collaboration between civil society groups and the Thai government to strengthen participatory democracy and increase the role of citizens in the political process.
