The problem of corruption in the Thai government has occurred for a long time. This includes corruption in government budget spending, the use of power to misappropriate public property, issuing policies and regulations for his/her benefit, using legal loopholes.

To be aware of the problems, we wrote this paper to address the root causes of corruption, especially corruption in country’s budget spending, as a starting point in the search for ways to eliminate corruption.
