  • The Industry Ministry forecasts investment flows in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) to begin from 2020, largely into the 12 targeted industries after the government begins to develop five megaprojects in the corridor.
  • There is some progress on the Map Ta Phut seaport, high-speed railway linking three airports and the U-tapao airport to build up investor confidence, said Industry Minister Suriya Jungrungreangkit.
  • The five projects are worth THB695bn.
  • Mr Suriya said the government will promote roadshows in China, Japan and Vietnam to attract investors with incentives for the EEC.
