Private sector to propose southern economic plan to mobile Cabinet in Chumporn

The private sector in 11 southern provinces will propose to the government during the mobile Cabinet meeting in Chumporn on August 20-21 to push for the implementation of the Southern Economic Corridor (SEC) projects with a combined investment projection of 200 billion baht, including 7 projects worth 8 billion baht for Chumporn province alone.

Mr Supong Uah-aree, present of Chumporn Chamber of Commerce, disclosed that the seven projects for Chumporn include the multi-purpose seaport, road and rail track projects connecting Chumporn with Ranong which will link up with the BIMSTEC economic grouping, flood prevention project, anti-crime project with the installation of CCTV system throughout the province and a motorway from the central region to Chumporn as well as a reservoir project at Tha Sae.

However, the Tha Sae reservoir project has already been withdrawn due to resistance from the dam opponents who recently met with the provincial governor to voice their objection to the project, said Mr Kitti Kittichomthawat, president of the Industrial Council of Chumporn.
