Security reform panel to consider Defence Ministry plan
The master plan aimed at reforming the Defence Ministry administration has been tabled before the security reform committee chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan today.
The plan would also cover defence research and industry development, according to General Taweep Netniyom, secretary-general of the National Security Council, who joined the panel.
The plan was considered by the panel along with other security improvements, including the NSC’s intelligence upgrade, the police reform plan prepared by the Royal Thai Police as assigned by the Cabinet, and the upgrade of the National Intelligence Agency.
Taweep said the panel had endorsed all the plans and would table them before the national strategic steering committee, or the mini Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha
