Event Type: Conference
Focus Area: High Speed Railways
Thailand’s rail transport sector is set to expand over the next decade, with construction on a new high-speed railway line to begin as early as next year while upgrades to the country’s mass rapid transit system are already under way. These projects are set to improve domestic and regional connectivity, and boost economic growth.
The projects are part of the government’s programme to spend nearly 1.8 trillion baht (US$50.8 billion) on 20 major infrastructure projects by 2022. Once under way, the new projects are predicted to boost Thailand’s economic growth rate by one percentage point, with knock-on benefits for the construction and tourism industries.
