BANGKOK, 31 January 2013 Deputy Interior Minister Chat Kuldilok has visited Ban Phu Nam Ron, in Kanchanaburi Province, where the Italian-Thai Development Company is working on utility and infrastructure projects.
According to the deputy minister, temporary public utilities have been completed at this stage, while a 4-lane road will soon be under construction to help ease traffic in the area. Furthermore, a housing project is underway to help those people whose houses have been expropriated by the government for the construction of the Dawei economic zone. The deputy said the housing project is now 50 percent complete.
Furthermore, Mr Chat said the government considered the Dawei project as the base for the ASEAN region’s economic expansion, plus Kanchanaburi Province is the border crossing point before anything can reach Dawei Deep Sea Port. All the projects in those areas must therefore be completed on schedule.
