Thailand Industry – Thai-China Rail Project MoU Approved

By on Dec 04, 2014 in Property News

The cabinet approved a draft memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Thailand and China for mutual cooperation on the development of the Nong Khai-Map Ta Phut dual-track electric rail route.

The draft MOU, proposed by the Transport Ministry, will allow China to play a lead role in developing the 1.435-metre standard-gauge railway route, stretching 734km from Nong Khai, Nakhon Ratchasima, and Kaeng Khoi district of Saraburi to Map Ta Phut, Rayong, on the Eastern Seaboard. Another 133km section links Bangkok with Kaeng Khoi.

The approval came after China agreed to lend Thailand cash to construct three dual-track railways as part of a government-to-government deal to boost regional transport links.
