Caught in discussions on Saturday, fresh off her two-day excursion to the captivating city of Chumphon, was the vivacious Pimpattra. With her typical charm, she delved into the intended objectives of the riveting project that’s lately been capturing everyone’s attention.
At its heart, the plan strives towards creating a link between the exotic Andaman Sea coastlines on the West, and those of the scenic Gulf of Thailand. The primary focus rests on fostering vibrant connections between the mesmerising provinces of Chumphon and Ranong.
The blueprint of the ambitious Land Bridge project traces back to none other than former Premier General Prayut Chan-o-cha. Famed for his sweeping vision, the seasoned statesman spotlighted the project’s immense capability to provide an adrenaline jolt to the economy while strengthening the bonds of connectivity enveloping the southern territories.
Whilst the private industry, including Chumphon’s thriving chambers of industry, commerce, and agriculture, whipped up a storm of worries, our industry minister assured all and sundry that she’s taken the appropriate steps to soothe their fears and eliminate any prospective project delays.
Not stopping there, the diligent minister bushwhacked through the inefficiencies, instructing the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEAT) to accelerate the study of regulations to set up industrial estates within strategic areas. These areas are formulated to complement the SEC within the heartland provinces of Chumphon, Ranong, Surat Thani, and Nakhon Si Thammarat.
The project’s spotlight gyrates around pivotal industries including agriculture and food, innovative biotechnology and the increasingly lucrative sector of health and wellness tourism.
Armed with a potent vision to rejuvenate the southern coastline provinces of the Gulf including Chumphon, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Phatthalung, Surat Thani, and Songkhla, the industrious Industry Ministry is set on a path of innovation. Their clarion call that rings out is one of revising regulations affiliated with mining and forestry, investing in the indispensable value of regional farming products, and putting formidable challenges to rest whilst simultaneously boosting the world of oil palm and rubber industries. Dominating their radar is the tackling of drought-related adversities that seem to put a damper on the top-notch quality of raw materials.
The government is simultaneously pulling all strings to amplify the expertise of entrepreneurs and heighten their competitive standing within the bustling market. In an all-encompassing move, this incorporates the evolution of smart agricultural industry entrepreneurs scattered across multiple provinces, says our effervescent minister, Pimpattra.
Acutely aware of the legal predicaments private sectors often bump into, the government has pledged to hasten the resolution of these stumbling blocks. This compasses an overhaul of regulatory procedures, paving the way for more accessible funding, and giving prioritisation to eco-friendly manufacturing methods. The minister also foresees a future that ropes in public participation to refine societal well-being. Pimpattra then concluded by expressing her hopes to upgrade the skillset of entrepreneurs, with a particular thrust on the establishment of astutely sharp agricultural industry entrepreneurs.
