Suriya Juangroongruangkit, Thailand's Transport Minister, will travel to China from May 6- 15 to participate in the 31st Thailand-China Railway Cooperation Meeting. The meeting aims to address transportation matters between the two nations and discuss the development of a regional high-speed rail system.

 

The Thai government is keen to fast-track the project, which involves the construction of a high-speed train line covering a total distance of 609 kilometers, with two phases - Bangkok–Nong Khai and Nakhon Ratchasima–Nong Khai.

 

An update on this project and strategies to speed up its completion will be presented during the meeting, with the aim to enhance the railway system's potential as a key hub for the economy and public transportation at the regional level.

 

Juangroongruangkit also plans to present Thailand’s ambitious "Land Bridge" project to Chinese investors. This project seeks to establish an economic bridge connecting the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea. The intention is to create a new trade route at the regional level, which could unlock new opportunities at the Asian regional scale.

"The Thai government is keen to fast-track the project...."

 

The Thai Govt Parliament first approved initial proposals of a HSR Network in October 2010. Fast tracking left the station years ago leaving a long haul the only alternative.
