Thai govt keen to push Dawei SEZ development despite Italian-Thai setback

NESDC secretary general Danucha Pichayanan.

BANGKOK (The Nation/ANN): Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha has been handed a detailed summary of Myanmar's cancellation of contracts with the Italian-Thai Development Company and partners to develop the first phase of the country’s Dawei special economic zone (SEZ) and deep-sea port.

The National Economic and Social Economic Council (NESDC)’s summary includes details of infrastructure projects in the zone, said NESDC secretary general Danucha Pichayanan.

He added that the Thai government would seek mechanisms to help Italian-Thai, and was keen to push forward Dawei’s development.

The Dawei SEZ and seaport will open a trade route to the Indian Ocean for Thai exports.
