Emergency Decree on Electronic Meetings, B.E. 2563 (2020)

The grounds for the promulgation of this Emergency Decree are as follows. Whereas at present, there is an outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 in many countries around the world, including Thailand, with a large number of infected people being admitted for medical treatment and died of such disease due to its high infectivity, the disease has thus been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation, and there is currently no clear guideline on how to cure the disease, the government has therefore adopted strict measures to control the outbreak of the disease in accordance with the recommendations of the World Health Organisation, in particular social distancing measures. As a result, meetings for regular consultation and discussion in the course of performance of work of public sector and private economic activities in almost every sector are conducted through electronic means.
