Transport

Thailand: Transport

After a few challenging years that saw air safety rating downgrades and delays in major infrastructure projects, Thailand’s transport sector is beginning to regain momentum. Significant progress has been achieved with the construction of rail and road networks, and issues around meeting international standards are being resolved as the country lays the groundwork to become a regional transport and logistics hub. Meanwhile, with the Asia-Pacific region set to be the fastest-growing market for commercial aviation over the next 20 years, Thailand is seeking to strengthen its aviation infrastructure, particularly its maintenance, repair and overhaul segment, targeting it as a high-value industry with significant growth potential. This chapter contains interviews with Arkhom Termpittayapaisith, Minister of Transport; Jin Liqun, President, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank; and Pierre Jaffre, President, Airbus Asia Pacific.
