Thailand’s EEC is an opportunity not to be missed (Bangkok Post)

The Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) is a major infrastructure project that helped Thailand’s economic development 30 years ago. The initiative includes the clusters of roads, dual-track and high-speed rail, air and sea projects connecting Bangkok to the 3 eastern provinces of Chachoengsao, Chon Buri and Rayong.

The EEC is Thailand’s primary magnet to attract investments in electric vehicles and the EV supply chain. It will also push for government policies, benefits, and other measures to support the local EV industry.

Prime Minster Prayut Chan-o-cha is expected to raise issues related to the revitalisation of the economies of the Asia-Pacific region post-pandemic. He is expected to ask APEC delegates to support, where and when they can, various EEC projects and initiatives.
