Thailand Transport

Thailand is quickly transforming from a country with transportation challenges to one that is becoming a leader in the region, and a possible logistics centre for ASEAN. The country’s air regulators are focusing on regaining the country’s top-grade assessments and have been working to remove weaker discount carriers. Thai Airways is also restructuring, and airports are being upgraded, enlarged and improved. Most importantly, the country’s leaders are calling for significant investments into infrastructure, much of it fast-tracked so that real, tangible results may be achieved within a few years. This chapter contains interviews with Prajin Juntong, Deputy Prime Minister, and Sutthinan Hutthawong, Director-General, Port Authority of Thailand; and a dialogue with Charamporn Jotikasthira, President, Thai Airways International and Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, President, Bangkok Airways.
