The National e-Library project was organised under the King's Science Program for Sustainable Development and developed by the Ministry of Education “for the benefit of every child in the country,” he added.

“We invite all children, grandchildren and students to experience a new learning experience so that they can learn from anywhere, anytime, like the world is in our hands,” he said.

The Prime Minister said that in the academic year 2019, the Ministry of Education will create an electronic learning form so that students can download without having to pay for the purchase of a textbook.

An “Online Librarian Team” will check the integrity of information before importing it into the system, he added.

“The National e-Library will be developed to link together data from agencies from all ministries and various educational institutions so that the it becomes an e-Learning system for the development of students and teachers to comply with the Digital Thailand policy,” he said.
