Forty-five state enterprises and their subsidiaries were prodded on Wednesday (January 15) to begin disbursing at least Bt100 billion in the first quarter of the year.

The urging came at a meeting at the State Enterprise Policy Office (Sepo) chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak.

Sepo deputy director Chanvit Nakburee said the state enterprises planned to invest Bt345.14 billion this year.

Among the key mega-projects targeted are the Red Line mass transit extension and double-track railway development.

Sepo director-general Prapas Kong-Ied said Somkid had urged the state enterprises to speed disbursement of funding by giving top priority to projects requiring imported raw materials and those involving overseas investment.
