Four steps to boost E-sarn region

Science and Technology Minister Suvit Maesinsee will visit Khon Kaen province during October 25-26 to follow up the ministry’s plan to develop the northeastern region into an economic center for the Mekong Sub-region, the Thai-language daily Matichon reported yesterday (Oct 23, 2018).

To achieve this objective, the ministry will implement four strategies as follows:

  1. Develop a sustainable water management plan for the region.
  2. Reduce poverty and strengthen the local economy.
  3. Link the region’s communication and transport networks with other regions in the country
  4. Enhance the region’s cooperation with neighboring countries through an economic corridor.
