Industrial estate operators are ploughing ahead with development plans in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), unfazed by the impact of Covid-19, said Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand deputy governor Attapon Jirawatjanya.

The authority recently approved the launch of three new industrial estates, including the Rojana Industrial Park in Nong Yai, Chonburi and the Egco Rayong Industrial Estate. Attapon expects them to inject about Bt80 billion in investment and generate around 50,000 jobs for the local economy.

He said that at least three more operators are consulting on plans to set up industrial estates in the EEC.

5G infrastructure to support automation and robotics will be installed within the next five years at the authorities’ five industrial estates – at Map Ta Phut, Laem Chabang, Bang Pu, Lat Krabang and the Northern Region Industrial Estate, he added.
