New PWA Governor takes on Thailand waterworks system development

The Provincial Waterworks Authority (PWA) has appointed Somboon Sunanthapongsak as the 15th PWA Governor.

The newly appointed governor announced his commitment to lead PWA to reach a goal of providing waterworks services and management with excellence and sustainability in compliance with a new policy titled: “FORWARDS with dynamism to the next era”.

“I trust that waterworks services and management operated by PWA will continue to be reliable, in particular the organisation’s commitment to infrastructure development across all 74 provinces of Thailand, especially in areas where purified water is scarce,” Mr. Somboon said.

“I believe my previous experience at the Department of Public Works and Town & Country Planning as well as the Metropolitan Waterworks Authority and waterworks system training in Japan, can inspire PWA production and service management to the next quality and standard levels. In pursuing this mission we will ensure satisfaction among all parties relevant to PWA, including the Interior Ministry, the Finance Ministry, and PWA Board of Directors, as well as our customers, communities, society, the environment, employees, and related networks. Collaboration between the government and the public is vital to build a solid foundation to develop and drive the organisation to sustainability.” 

The new PWA governor added that, “The key for executive board members and staff to develop the organisation and enhance service is expressed by our policy of ‘FORWARDS with dynamism to the next era’.  We will bring together excellence and sustainability for the benefit of our customers, the public, employees, and the country as well as paving the way for Thailand to achieve fundamental international waterworks system development.”
