Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha received proposals from companies in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) to draw more investment to the zone on Thursday.

 

The suggestions were made during the premier's visit to survey progress of EEC projects and listen to private-sector ideas for its further development.

 

WHA Corporation chief executive officer Jareeporn Jarukornsakul said the  formation of a joint private sector-government team to woo foreign investment via roadshows overseas was among the proposals. The team should include Board of Investment and EEC executives, she added. 

 

Businesses also urged closer cooperation between  government and the private sector to develop the zone. 

 

Government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri said that the combined value of  projects applying to invest in the EEC over the past eight months was Bt85 billion.

With a substantive offering, you can always find customers.   Why would anyone invest in the EEC over going to Malaysia or Vietnam?   Other than it is a pet project of the Thai military, what is value is it to a foreign company?  All they talk about is money, money and more money.

Yes, of course, investments with money. What else?
