Prachuap Khiri Khan Province is set to construct a border crossing building at Singkhon border with a budget of 240 million THB,
to facilitate the expanding border trade and growing investment.
Prachuap Khiri Khan Public Works and Town & Country Planning Official Somboon Nuancharoen has said the Department of Public Works and Town & Country Planning has received 77 million THB, designated as a budget for the development of Singkhon border crossing to facilitate the increasing trade and investment activities after the area was declared a special alleviation zone. He said the department has also received 240 million baht budget for the construction of the border crossing building accommodating the immigration process, as well as the process of inspection and quarantine of people and goods crossing the border.
The province is now coordinating with the Royal Forest Department requesting the land use permission before construction begins. The design of the building will resemble the identity of Thai agriculture. Prachuap Khiri Khan Province will be welcoming the Chief Minister of Myanmar’s Tanintharyi Region, as well as officials and businessmen attending the discussion with officials and private sector of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. Both sides will be discussing future upgrades to Singkhon border crossing into a permanent border crossing to maximize border trade facilitation and investment.
