BANGKOK — A project to connect three international airports by high-speed rail was suspended after the conglomerate backing the project changed its terms.

 

The official who helped oversee the project, which would link Bangkok’s two airports with one on the eastern seaboard, said Charoen Pokphand Group, or CP, unexpectedly demanded doubling its operating concession from 50 to 99 years.

I was going to say, that certainly appears to be a chicken-sh** move on CP's part.... :biggrin:

 

CP, by the way, basically means Dhanin Chearavanont et al, the richest billionaire in Asia... So they've got their fingers in a lot more than frozen chicken legs....

 

Fingers in frozen chicken legs?

Does that relate to the old question  Should chicken be eaten with fingers?

I think it has more to do with Dhanin's various corporate entities including everything from CP's food and grocery businesses, the 7/11 empire, real estate development, True and Truevisions cable TV, and on and on....

There'd be a 7/11 at every station. So CP has got that going for then I suppose.

The normal default source for such things is Forbes magazine and website:
