The Thai-Myanmar Joint High Level Committee (JHC) on Dawei special economic zone met for the first time on Monday in Bangkok to discuss infrastructure projects.
The meeting was co-chaired by Thai Deputy Prime Minister Kittirat Na Ranong and visiting Myanmar's Vice President Nyan Tun.
The Myanmar vice president is scheduled to leave Bangkok this evening but most of the Myanmar delegates will visit Chon Buri’s Laem Chabang industrial estate and Rayong’s Map Ta Phut industrial estate on Thursday.
Nyan Tun and Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra met in the morning at the Government House to discuss the joint development of Myanmar's Dawei Special Economic Zone and its related areas.
Both leaders later witnessed the signing of documents formalising the Myanmar-Thailand Joint Committee for Comprehensive Development of the Dawei Special Economic Zone and its related projects.
Apart from JHC, a meeting of the Myanmar-Thailand Joint Coordinating Committee (JCC) Development in the Dawei Special Economic Zone was also held and co-chaired by Prime Minister's Office minister Niwattumrong Boonsongpaisan and Myanmar’s Industry Minister.
Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul earlier said the parties would discuss infrastructure projects, including the electrical power system, tap water, and the road and communication network. Both sides will consider details of investors in the project and how to invest for mutual benefit.
