High-Speed Railway and the Landscape of Eastern Economic Corridor 2030
Thailand is launching Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC). In particular, the Bangkok-Rayong highspeed railway (HSR) links three international airports of Don Mueang, Suvarnabhumi, and U-Tapao, which is expected to change the landscape of the EEC area to be service oriented.
This symposium will discuss the impacts of the high-speed railway projects in Thailand and the landscape of Thailand 2030 focusing on the EEC. IDE-JETRO will present the simulation results of HSRs and the EEC by using the IDE Geographical Simulation Model (IDE-GSM) which makes it possible to predict the impacts of HSRs on the EEC and the rest of Thailand.
