BCCT, in collaboration with FTCC, AustCham, GTCC, AMCHAM, NTCC and EABC, would like to invite you to Phuket Business Dinner on Update and Future Plans for Thailand's Kra Isthmus Project on Thursday 1 February 2018 at Amari Phuket. 

With a long history of Kra Canal studies and agreements, Kra Isthmus Project is one of the most controversial projects in the history of Thailand. Will Thailand make it this time? Many Thais hope that the gigantic investment of 55 billion US$ to begin with, would help jumping start Thailand's economy. It would also create a ripple effect among the ASEAN countries which would benefit from such as ambitious development. Besides, the Kra Canal will also be the solution to the congested Straits of Malacca, the busiest Sea Lane of Communication in the world.  It is estimated that once the Canal is constructed, it would generate free flows of trade and development between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. India and China are projected to be the two giants of growth for the 21st Century. According to the latest poll conducted by the Songkhla University, about 74% of Southern people from 14 provinces have already agreed with the construction of the Canal project. Will the Thai Government agree to the suggestion? Can Thailand wait any longer? Will Thailand change?
