Officials in Prachuap Khiri Khan Province are expediting the construction of a border crossing office building at the Singkhon Pass.
The governor of Prachuap Khiri Khan, Dr. Panlop Singhaseni, said provincial authorities are pushing forward with the plan to upgrade the Singkhorn Pass into a permanent border crossing point to support economic and tourism growths. Panlop said the Department of Public Works and Town and Country Planning has received a 240-million THB budget for the construction of the border crossing office building to facilitate the immigration process.
He went on to say that the upgrade of the Singkhon Pass will further stimulate trade and investment along the Thai-Myanmar border. No announcements about the imminent ability of foreigners to use the crossing were made.
