Thailand's Lianchabang Port is Thailand's largest container deep-sea port and an important logistics hub. As a flagship project in the development strategy of the Eastern Economic Corridor, Thailand has always hoped to build Lianchabang Port into the most advanced and intelligent port in ASEAN. The introduction of Chinese technology will undoubtedly press a fast-forward key for the development of this port, and China's smart manufacturing will also become another new business card of Thailand's connectivity to the world.

Anutin: Products produced in China as a production base can be distributed and transported to the southernmost part of Southeast Asia through Thailand's efficient transportation network. Thailand can also make the transportation of goods more efficient and reduce the transportation cycle and cost of goods. Thailand can also serve as an auxiliary production base outside China to speed up the efficient circulation of products in the region. China is assured that Thailand is ready to become the logistics and trade center of China and Southeast Asian countries.

Thailand first transported agricultural products to China through the China Laos railway

Anutin: I think this is the result of the full preparation of the two countries for expanding trade opportunities. Thailand has also strengthened its transportation system, thus improving the timeliness of receiving goods from China. These goods are transported by sea, river, and river mainly through the Mekong River, as well as by railway. Especially in railway transportation, goods can enter China from Thailand through Laos. These are all preparations for increasing the volume of trade between the two countries. This is an important cornerstone of the close relationship between Thailand and China, which is very important. Because we build mutual trust, our two countries can trade conveniently on the basis of mutual trust, which also brings good opportunities for Thailand.Editor/Ma Xue
