Thailand plans multi-billion-dollar infrastructure investment to boost economy


Thailand is to invest around US$15 billion in transport infrastructure, including upgrades to its key container port, Laem Chabang, in order to boost economic growth.

The Prime Minister's office said, "The Thai government is currently promoting several large-scale water transport projects, including an industrial port development project in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) district."

It is hoped that building up Thailand's waterway transportation network will boost international trade with the export-oriented Southeast Asian country.

Of the investment amount, roughly US$3 billion will go towards upgrading Laem Chabang, to increase Thailand's export and import cargo transportation capacity. Besides Laem Chabang, the government plans to build and develop one automated container terminal along Bangkok port's West Quay in the future.

To support the deep-sea shipping ecosystem, the government also wants to develop 29 public terminals on the Chao Phraya River to strengthen water traffic safety and develop Laem Chabang into a smart port that has seamless intermodal links with transportation systems such as automobiles and railways.

Despite falling container freight rates, the Thai government has not given up on establishing a national shipping company, and is undertaking a feasibility study.

In an interview with Bloomberg aired today (28 February), Thailand's Finance Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith said that these infrastructure projects will insulate the economy from weaker exports.

Besides the port investments, Arkhom said there are plans to build a high-speed railway linking three airports.

Among Southeast Asian economies, Thailand's economic growth stood at 2.1% in 2022, halving from 2021, making it the slowest-growing economy among ASEAN countries.

Two container vessels suffer severe damage after collision in Vietnam


Two container vessels collided on the Long Tau river in southern Vietnam on 11 February. The two ships and many containers were severely damaged.

The 2,038 TEU Wan Hai 288 and the 920 TEU Resurgence are the two involved vessels. A number of boxes from the first ship were destroyed as the port bow of the vessel was hit by Resurgence, whose bow was crunched in the incident.

According to reports, Wan Hai 288 suffered a grounding incident after the collision and was towed to a nearby repair yard, while Resurgence went to a container terminal at Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam for inspection operations.

The Singapore vessel, Wan Hai 288, was sailing towards a port in Ho Chi Minh City when it collided with the Bahamian vessel Resurgence, which was going in the opposite direction, according to a report by the Vietnamese newspaper VnExpress.
