Unfazed by the Covid-19 outbreak and new wave of infections, industrial estate operators have continued making new investments and expanding, said Somchint Pilouk, governor of the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEAT).

Recently, Rojana Industrial Park signed a pact with IEAT to build a 1,988-rai industrial park in Chonburi’s Nong Yai district.

This will be the newest industrial park to be opened in the Eastern Economic Corridor zone and will serve the so-called S-curve and new S-curve industries. The park is expected to get off the ground in 2024.

Somchint said the number of new industrial parks this year will not be lower than the average of two to three parks per year. She added that some existing operators like Amata City Rayong are also planning to expand their area.
