Interior Ministry hands down policies to Tak, SEZ province, preparing for AEC


TRAT, 24 Feb 2015, Inspector General of the Interior Ministry Wichit Chartpisit has paid a visit to Trat Province, one of the Special Economic Zones (SEZ).

His visit was aimed at inspecting the progress of the preparation of the area for the establishment of the SEZ ahead of the coming of the ASEAN Economic Community at the end of the year.

According to Mr. Wichit, the province is progressing smoothly with many of the key milestones met as targeted even though several projects, such as the construction of the Klongyai pier and the renovation plan for the highway number 3 linking Trat and Hadlek ( หาดเล็ก), have had minor hiccups; for example, the lack of clear demarcation line in some areas has sometimes made it difficult for the joint development project to progress as earlier planned, the Inspector General said.

Furthermore, the checkpoint at Baan-had-lek has become congested, given there are no separate screening points for traders and for tourists, making the inspection process lengthy.
