PMs’ meet to discuss energy, port projects

The prime ministers and cabinets of Thailand and Myanmar will meet on April 30 to strengthen bilateral relations, particularly development projects along the border, a local daily quoted Thai Foreign Minister Noppadon Pattama as saying.

The discussion will reportedly include cooperation on many areas including energy, deep sea ports as well as anti-narcotic suppressions. Both countries are looking forward to strengthening cooperation on transportation network including East-West Corridor projects.


The prime ministers will ink an agreement on Contract Farming, and find ways to tackle problems of increasing number of Myanmar illegal workers in Thailand. Recently 54 Myanmar job seekers suffocated in a closed container of a truck after being smuggled into Thailand and were on their way to Phuket province from the border province of Ranong in Southern Thailand.
