China asked to design Bangkok-Nakhon Ratchasima high-speed train route


BANGKOK, 5 November 2013 Chinese representatives visiting Thailand to further collaborations in high-speed train construction and trade in rice and other agricultural produce have expressed confidence that all agreed collaborations will be realized as planned. 

Chinese representatives met with Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Monday to discuss the Chinese involvement in Thailand’s high-speed train system and Thai-Chinese agreements on rice trade and trade in other farm produce. The topics had been earlier discussed in October.

Prime Minister Yingluck thanked the Chinese government for the attention it gives to the collaborations. She also revealed that Thailand has asked China to plan and design the Bangkok-Nakhon Ratchasima high-speed train route. A credible institution will evaluate the cost of the construction; half of which could be paid for by Thai farm produce.
