Chiang Mai - “User-Friendly City”?

The Social Development and Human Security Ministry is encouraging all municipalities throughout the country to work on making their cities as “user-friendly” as possible by concentrating on five aspects – safety, cleanliness, good governance, quality of life, and culture.

A seminar was held on January 7 at the Green Lake Resort Hotel to discuss ways of promoting social services in municipalities using the concept of “Liveable Towns - Liveable Communities”. More than 100 Chiang Mai and northern city, town and district administrators attended the seminar, which was presided over by Dr. Pholdech Pinpraweep, the Deputy Minister of Social Development and Human Security.
