Yingluck drums up Japanese investment for Dawei, rail projects

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has invited Japanese investors to join the Dawei Deep Sea Port project in Myanmar, while Japanese businesses have expressed an interest in bidding for satellite and high-speed rail projects in Thailand, the PM's secretary-general said Thursday.

Suranand Vejjajiva said Yingluck met her Japanese counterpart, Shinzo Abe, on Wednesday and discussed bilateral business cooperation.

Suranand said Yingluck presented details of the modules of the water-management and flood-prevention scheme, the Bt2-trilllion transport infrastructure projects and the Dawei Deep Sea Port and Special Economic Zone project to potential Japanese investors.

She also presented preliminary information on the projects to the Japanese prime minister so that his government could consider supporting the developments.
