PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN, 21 May 2015 – Singkhon border post’s upgrade into a special border crossing will provide opportunities for Thai entrepreneurs to invest in Myanmar and reduce their transportation costs, says the Prachuap Khiri Khan Chamber of Commerce.

According to the Honorable Chairman of the Prachuap Khiri Khan Chamber of Commerce Nipon Suwannava, the Singkhon special border crossing upgrade is considered a successful cooperation effort between the government and the private sector, as it will help increase the border trade value.

He has said that this upgrade will provide more opportunities for Thai entrepreneurs to invest in Myanmar, especially in the businesses regarding electricity, hotels and accommodations, construction material, and infrastructure improvements, which are still lacking in Myeik, Myanmar.

The Prachuap Khiri Khan Chamber of Commerce’s Honorable Chairman added that road improvements, on roads 200 meters, along the Singkhon border post to Myeik in Myanmar will help facilitate trade and investment as it will help reduce the time and cost of transportation.
