By on Oct 28, 2013 in Property News

Factories to co-exist with communities.  The government is developing a pilot project for an industrial eco-town in Rayong, based on Japan’s Kitakyushu model.

Arkhom Termpittayapaisith, secretarygeneral of the National Economic and Social Development Board (NESDB), said a recent meeting of the Eastern Seaboard Committee chaired by Deputy Prime Minister and Commerce Minister Niwatthamrong Bunsongphaisan endorsed the plan.

“The Kitakyushu eco-town is a good example of communities and factories living together in harmony, while Rayong is home to many industrial factories along the Eastern Seaboard,” he said.

Members of the government’s planning agency visited Kitakyushu from Oct 18-20 on a fact-finding tour and will map out an action plan to be submitted for government approval.

The NESDB and the Industry Ministry will collaborate with the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) and related agencies on the eco-town development plan.

Kitakyushu city is located in the north of Kyushu island’s Fukuoka prefecture.It has long been one of Japan’s foremost areas for heavy industries such as iron manufacturing and gained valuable experience in overcoming serious environmental pollution.  Kitakyushu has become a clear example of development by shifting from heavy to environmental industries.
