The nationwide consultations are meant to increase public awareness with regards to the government’s planned infrastructure development projects that would seek to elevate the livelihood of its people. It intends to highlight the consequential benefits of products and services development as well as the value of progressive connectivity with neighboring countries through transportation innovation and logistics.

In a keynote speech, Dr. Chatchart Sittipan addressed how the government loan of 2 trillion baht will be used for infrastructure development across the country and how the whole project could help the country become the keystone of mainland South-East Asia. The centerpiece of the spending plan is a network of high-speed railway lines to connect Thailand’s four main regions with Bangkok. Participants were made aware of the purpose and benefits of the planned developments that were to happen in the next 7 years.
