Thailand’s security commission has approved a reform plan aimed at improving the government's intelligence work by consolidating work of a network of 27 agencies.

The security commission led by Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwon has also approved a plan to create an app to decode encrypted information classified as confidential and related to national security, The Bangkok Post reported citing a statement made by National Security Council secretary-general Thawip Netniyom Wednesday.

The plan will be forwarded to the steering committee on security reform, agriculture, natural resources and reducing social inequality for consideration.

Intelligence work is mainly overseen by the National Intelligence Agency under the Prime Minister's Office.
