BANGKOK – Thailand’s Ministry of information and Communication Technology has defended its proposed single internet gateway amid outcry by hundreds of thousands of users that it will violate rights to access to information and individual privacy.

ICT Minister Uttama Savanayana says the gateway project was proposed to drive the Single Gateway project towards economical benefits and national security.

Uttama Savanayana said the project intends to facilitate economic expansion as providers will be able to cut their costs from common uses of the facility.

He assured that the project will not violate any privacy or rights of individuals, claiming that this arrangement will  further enhance data security as the authorities will have better access to information regarding online offenses.

He stressed that the government does not intend to utilize the new gateway arrangement for the political stability reasons.

He asked the public not to worry much as  the project is just being studied.

The ministry will invite representatives from the business sector and the general public to further inform the details of this project, he said.
