GHL up 3.1% on getting moneylending licences in Malaysia, Thailand
Surin Murugiah August 14, 2019 11:13 am +08


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 14): GHL Systems Bhd shares rose 3.1% this morning after it obtained an operating licence to lend money in Malaysia and Thailand. The licence permits money lending services to both individuals and businesses.

At 10.42am, GHL added 4 sen to RM1.33 for a market capitalisation of RM996.45 million.

In a statement yesterday, GHL said its Malaysian unit GHL Payments Sdn Bhd had received the Money Lending Licence from the housing and local government ministry under the Moneylenders Act 1951, while its Thai unit GHL (Thailand) Co Ltd was issued the Nano Finance Licence by the Bank of Thailand.

The licences permit moneylending services to both individuals as well as businesses, GHL said.

"This marks a significant milestone in GHL's strategy in offering more value-added services to its small merchant base in terms of aiding the latter in their cash flow needs," it said.

"The offering of moneylending services not only creates better transactional value for merchants, but also increases GHL's relevancy to its customers," GHL added, pointing to its transaction payment acquisition merchants which stand at 87,600 points in Malaysia and Thailand.

Need to negotiate with Chinese Government on the bone of connection in Section 2.3 of Thai - China Railway [Issue related to plate laying - electro-mechanic and EMUs along with training] which need to add the budget from 38,558.38 Million Baht 50,633.50 Million Baht along with 12 issues of Section 2.3 which Attorney General has raised to make a settlement by 1 November 2019 (Before ASEAN summit with the meeting with Chinese Prime Minister who come to ASEAN Summit) and the extension of Section 2.3 from 3 August 2019 to 31 December 2019

Even though Thai government manages to save 14,000 Million Baht from the construction cost, the cost has been shift to EMUs and other rolling stocks along with the bone of contention section
1. 7000 million Baht for track maintenance vehicles, the welded rail building and track inspection vehicles
2. 3400 million Baht the change of EMUs from Hexia Hao EMUs to Fuxing Hao EMUs which has no intellectual property issue attached and it is the newer technology
3. 1000 million Baht for the change of Bangsue Central - Donmueang which has to be ferro-concrete tracks without ballast

For the construction cost of with 14 contracts and the total price tags of 120,162.126 Million Baht, 2 are now under construction, 5 still waiting for contract signing, 5 still waiting for bidding,
one that need to have TOR amendment on Chiang Rak Noy Depot and maintenance center to be on bidding in September 2019, and the last one which need to wait until CP has made a settlement for the construction of High speed train
connecting 3 Airports - Contract 4-1 Bangsue - Donmueang which have to share the structure to be on bidding in September 2019 and need to be done bidding and get contractors by the end of 2019 so as to speed up the work to be opened by the end of 2023 - Hope for the clear answer from CP Holding by 9 September 2019 on the issue of land transfers before singing up by the end of September 2019 if there is no objection.

After signing, SRT and CP will have make negotiation which section is for High Speed train connecting 3 airport and which one is for Thai - China Railway to prevent construction chaos.

SRT is going to hire the consultant to handle the design of High Speed train from Khorat to Nong Khai (2nd phase of Thai - China railway) at 751 Million Baht to be signed in September 2019 and it takes 19 months to be done. The last phase is the connection of Lao - China Railway and Thai - China Railway which will take time to be done.

Big Too grilling MoT to deal with Thai - China Railway - when the negotiation will be done? November 2019 is the answer - the ticket price for Thai - China railway is 107 - 534 Baht - and it takes 90 minute from Bangsue Central to Khorat with 250 kph max speed - most steels for Thai - China railway will have to be Chinese made steel

This video has enlightened us to see the reason why we should not build Pakchong High Speed train Station at the existing Pakchong Railway station. The existing Pakchong Railway station is behind the flea market which is going to create traffic jam around the station for sure. Furthermore, Pakchong High Speed train station needs 500 Rai (80 Hectares) of land for just High Speed train station alone along with 3000 Rai (480 Hectares) of land for New Pakchong city, so the protest against land expropriation is going to happen since the whole flea market along with community around this flea market must be removed. Therefore, Pakchong Station for High Speed train must be at Treasury Land in sugar cane plantation near cattle pens and horse pens on Highway No. 2247 in Tha Manao commune which is 5 km away from existing Pakchong Railway station. For the access to existing railway, there is going to be the new railway station on the existing railway line to allow those who takes local trains to access Pakchong High Speed train station. The distance of new railway station on the existing railway and Pakchong High Speed train station will be just 50 meter.

This Eastern Seaboard Railway networks with 34 stations total distance of 333 km consists of the following 3 sections:
1. Sri Racha - Bowin - Ban Khai - Rayong to serve those who live and work in the Industrial estate - with Contrainer Yard at Amata City Rayong Industrial Estate - likely to start at Bang Lamung
2. Maptaphut - Rayong - to connect with the existing Maptaphut line - started at Ban Chang
3. Rayong - Chanthaburi - Trat - Klong Yai - to bring fruits and para rubber to feed Laem Chabang Deep Sea Port along with tourists to feed the beaches and fruit orchards - with container yard for the fruits and para rubbers at Tha Mai district of Chanthaburi

Some will have elevated track, U-turn, elevated road, the access road and tunnels as needed

If those who live around Industrial estates in the Eastern Seaboard agree with this eastern seaboard railway line from Sri Racha to Rayong via Bowin,
Eastern Seaboard Industrial estate, Ban Khai along with those who live between Maptaphut and Rayong and those who live along Sukhumvit road from Rayong,
Chanthaburi, Trat and Klong Yai district agree with this Eastern Seaboard Railway project, they will be able to ride the trains in 2031
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIGLIdaL_u4
https://mgronline.com/local/detail/9620000070068

Even though those who live in Trat has agreed with the railway project from Sri Racha to Rayong, Maptaphut to Rayong and Rayong to Klong Yai via Chanthaburi and Trat with total distance of 333 km and 34 stations, they still have a concern whether the project will become loss ridden. Therefore, those who live in Trat are pressing the demands to speed up the project to be done in 5 year rather than 10 year even it means to putting more money to hire more contractors or giant contractors with construction technology that shorten the construction from 10 years to 5 years. There will be 3 container yards at Amata City Industrial Estate in Rayong, Tha Mai district of Chanthaburi and Trat with a new locomotive depot in Trat.

Those who live in Trat have complained that Trat station at Phrong Takhe village in Noen Sai commune, Mueang district is still too far from Trat city center (10 - 11 km from Trat Provincial Hall) - a big dilemma due to the issue with those NIMBY who are pressing the demands for station near city Center while they refuse to sacrifice their land plots to archive the goal.
https://mgronline.com/local/detail/9620000070523

More detail on Eastern Seaboard Railway Networks with total distance of 333 km and 34 stations


Section 1: Sri Racha - Rayong - Route AB4 has been chosen - from Bang Lamung Railway station - passing Amata City with the first container yard on Highway 331 passing Nikhom Phatthana district and Ban Khai district before reaching Rayong

Section 2: Map Ta Phut - Rayong - Route CB2 has been chosen - from Ban Chang Railway station to Rayong without going through Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate due to the construction risk as well as EHIA issue which is tedious to say the least.

Section 3: Rayong - Na Yai Arm - Route BD3 has been chosen - from Rayong to go along the coastal route to Ban Phe (main dropping point to Samet Island) before going up North to Klaeng district before going parallel to Sukhumvit road to Na Yai Arm

Section 4: Na Yai Arm - Trat - Route DE2 that goes along the sea has been chosen - going from Na Yai Arm to Tha Mai district (the second Container Yard) for handling fresh fruit and processed fruits before reaching Chanthaburi which is on Chanthaburi bypass - not too far from Chanthaburi city center before passing along the sea to Makham, Laem Singh, Klung, Khao Saming before reaching Trat station at Phrong Takhe village in Noen Sai commune, Mueang district is still too far from Trat city center (10 - 11 km from Trat Provincial Hall)

Section 5: Trat to Klong Yai - single track due to the space constrain - going along with Sukhumvit passing the coastal area with the third container yard in Trat to handle fresh fruit and processed fruits before reaching Klong Yai terminus near Custom Office - expect this line to construct the last one - ONLY after, Cambodian government had made a decision to make the second rail crossing to Eastern Seaboard -

According to the correspondent, the Branch line from Khao Saming station to Trat Airport all the way to the ferry pier to Koh Chang is necessary to facilitate the tourists business on Koh Chang

Expect the first four sections to be done in 2031 - However, those who live in Trat said they want this eastern seaboard route to be done in 2026 which means the government need to double the budget to hire more contractors or pick the contractor giants who can fulfill their wishes with state of the art construction technology which beyond the capacity of local Thai contractors.

The idea of starting at Bang Lamung rather than Sri Racha is not a bad idea at all since there will be double tracking project from Sri Racha to Map Taphut and Sattahip Port - and it will give a model of railway networks that help to boost up the overall regional economy (Agriculture, Industries, EXIM Trades and Tourism) for other regions to follow and boost more immigration to deal with aging society.

However, it is likely that Cambodian Government want to make a rail link from Battambang to pass Ban Phakkard checkpoint in Pong Namron district of Chanthaburi to make a rail connection with Chanthaburi - as the way to allow rice export through Laem Chabang deep sea port which is much easier to construct than the route from Sahanoukville to Koh Kong

On the issue of Hatyai - Padang besar electrified double tracking with elevated station at Klong Ngae - Government has strongly approved double tracking but not in case of electrification - Plan for electrified double tracking from Hatyai to Padang Besar - at the time being, the electrification part have to be suspended since there is no THAI EMU crossing the border to Padang Besar - the solution may needs to use red line commuter EMUs to run such a service to justify electrification from Hatyai to Padang Besar with elevated station at Klong Ngae . Those railway men of Hatyai better appeal to the government by coming up with the plan for electrification to create Hatyai commuter network to justify electrification on the section including Hatyai - Padang Besar, Hatyai - Phatthalung, Hatyai - Songkla and so on

Specification for Hatyai - Padang Besar electrified Double tracking projects:

Gauge: 1 meter
Axle Load: Maximum 20 tons for cargo trains and 16 tons for passenger trains
Steel rails: UIC54 or BS110
Max speed: 160 kph according to the deisng but the actual service speed will be 120 kph
Signal: ETCS Level 1 like red line commuter
No level crossing - either flyovers, overpasses, underpasses with erected fenses
Power 25KVAC 50Hz just like Airport Link

There will be 5 types of trains passing through this line after electrified double tracking

1. cross border ETS by KTMB from Hatyai to KL Sentral as the extension of KL Sentral - Padangbesar to boost up the flaggin tourist business in Hatyai - also as replacement of Lankawi Express

2. SP45/46 (BKK - Padang Besar)

3. Hatyai - Padang Besar shuttle - after Langkawi express have been defunct

4. Future local train including Surat Thani - Hatyai - Padang Besar / Patthalung - Hatyai - Padang Besar

5. Cross Border cargo train (Phahonyothin Freight Yard - Padang Besar as well as the irregular Hatyai - Padang Besar cargo)

List of stations and stops
0. Hatyai Junction - to have the new EMU depot

1. Ban Plu Stop

2. Sala Thung Lung station (the revived station - from the public park after the end of Hatyai - Padang Besar mixed train) - at grade with 4 tracks

3. Klong Ngae station - 2 elevated track for passenger trains and 2 at grade tracks for cargo trains

4. Klong Ram Stop

5. Ban Tha Khoi stop

6. Padang Besar (Thai) station - 2 elevated track for passenger trains and 2 at grade tracks for cargo trains

Budget: 13000 Million Baht
Double tracking: 7700 million Baht
Electrification: 5200 million Baht

Economic analysis for the Case of electrified double tracking :
EIRR 18.70%
NPV 3,400 Million Baht
B/C 1.7

Economic analysis for the Case of double tracking without electrification
EIRR 18.24%
NPV 2,500 Million Baht
B/C 1.6

EIRR more than 12% and Positive NPV - this line should get the first or high priority to implement

Note: If Malaysian Government badly wants to allow KTMB to be able to run the ETS service to Hatyai and beyond, they better grant a loan for both electrification, new EMU depot as well as the New EMUs from Batu Gajar so that Thai government to allow the creation of Hatyai commuter networks

Note 2 : Some of Thai nettizens badly want the branch line from Ban Plu station (Ban Plu Stop upgraded to station) to reach Hatyai International Airport - since AOT and RTAF seems not to allow the construction of Hatyai Monorail to reach Hatyai International Airport.

์Note 3: many Thai nettizen gone mad after the government Refuse to finance the electrification of Hatya to Padang Besar on the ground that NO Thai electric train reaching Padang Besar - the only way to change is to set up Hatyai - Padang Besar commuter to run elctric train - just borrow from red line commute first

Deputy BMA Governor on the issue of Grey line Monorail which consists of 3 sections
1. Wacharaphon - Thong Lor
2. Phra Khanong - Rama 3
3. Rama 3 - Tha Phra - by Conversion of BRT

Now, this line is under EIA - the longest delay will be on section 2 (Phra Khanong - Rama 3) due to the housing and shop - need proper negotiation

So far, 80% of those locals support this poject - Hope that Section 1 (Wacharaphon - Thong Lor) and Section 3 (Rama 3 - Tha Phra - by Conversion of BRT) can start the construction in 2021

Note: It is not a bad idea to convert BRT into Grey line monorail. However, there are a few bones of contention to make a settlement. First of all is the connection of Section 1 and Section 2 because a lot of people have booed the idea of connection of 2 unconnected sections with BTS Skytrain ride from Thong Lor to Phra Khanong which mean to more unnessessary expenditure of ticket payments. Some evem wonder how Phra Khanong station of BTS will connect with grey line Monorail.

Governor of Nakhon Ratchasima and Mayor of Khorat city agree to add 11518 Million Baht cost overrun to SRT on Map Krabao - Thanon Jira double project by telling SRT to demolish flyover and dig the underpass tunnel across Nakhon Ratchasima Station Yard to make the way for the elevated tracks through Khorat city as demanded by Khorat city Mayor and his voting banks. If both Governor of Nakhon Ratchasima and Mayor of Khorat city REFUSE to come to make a budget defense for SRT when SRT Governor and SRT Board are being GRILLED ALIVE by both Parliament (MPs and Senators) and Cabinet of Big Too and Ministry of Finance, it would be a REAL and GREAT SHAME for making such a demand without good defenses for cost overruns by extra works
https://siamrath.co.th/n/103185

Goodbye the old SIma Thani flyover across Nakhon Ratchasima Railway yard - going to construct the temporary flyover across the railway yard to give some relieve at Amphawan Intersection while constructing both tunnel across the railway yard and 5 km elevated tracks as a part of Map Krabao - Thanon Jira double project double tracking with the price tag of 11518.30 Million Baht which is going to put SRT in hot water with Ministry of Finance and Budget Bureau. The construction starts in July 2020 to be done in December 2023. This choice is going to cause the disruption of traffic for sure.

After all, this is what the local Khorat people want the most. The alternative of 4 km elevated tracks without demolishing Sima Thani flyover is NOT in favor of those voting banks of Khorat city Mayor despite of the cost of 9758.79 Million Baht which is consider as the cost within acceptable maximum.

The alternative of 13 km elevated track without demolishing Sima Thani flyover is definitely not in favor since it needs to be started in 2026 and done in 2030 - too much delays. Worse, too much cost overrun at 21826 Million Baht.

Next on the line is the way to deal with Hua Thale flyover.

By popular demands, the test run from Hua Lamphong to Bang Wah will be extended all the way to Lak Song with a stop at Phetkasem 48, Phasee Charoen, Bang Khae and Lak Song on 21 September 2019 before starting the revenue service on 29 September 2019.

Furthermore, the weekday services will start from Lak Song at 5.30 AM (Weekend service starts from Lak Song at 6 AM) to be in line with the larger coverage distance while the last train from Lak Song will start at 11.05 PM. On the other hand, the train from Tao Poon starts at 6 AM and the last train from Tao Poon departs at 11.30 PM

Shuttle service during rush hour periods will be Laksong - Bang Wah and Tao Poon - Chatuchak Park

Those who want to go to Yaowaraj must go to Gate No. 1 at Charoen Krung Soi 16 (AKA Plaeng Nam road) and the passengers had better use store value cards rather than single trip tokens for the travel convenience.

Progress on Double tracking from Lopburi to Nakhon Sawan - August 2019
Contract 1: Ban Klub - Khok Krathiam (AKA Thawung elevated bypass)
Accumulated progress: 4.50 %
Planned Progress: 21.14 %
Progress (Delay): (-16.64 %)

Ban Klab station will be the improvement of existing station building

Here is my own opinion on the stations along Ban Klub - Khok Krathiam (AKA Thawung elevated bypass)
1. Lopburi 1? The more appropriate name would be either Lopburi river, Pho Kao Tone according to the name of intersection or Wat Thammikaraj - which one you prefer?
2. Lopburi 2? The more appropriate name would be either Tha Wung according to the name of commune, Wat Pho Kaew or Sanam Chai according to the name of intersection - which one would you prefer?
https://www.facebook.com/lopburipakn...90395018339593

Progress on Double tracking from Lopburi to Nakhon Sawan - August 2019
Contract 2: Tha Khae - Pak Nam Pho
Accumulated progress: 37.48 %
Planned Progress: 60.49 %
Progress (Delay): (-23.01 %)

1. Idea of Station downgraded to stop still under consideration
2. Bridge across Railway at Highway 11 is the old existing bridge
3. Bridge across Railway at Highway 225 has been done by Highway Dept

Minister of Transport making a clear point that railway need to handle at least 30% of logistics to cut down the cost.
Therefore, the new lines and Phase 2 of massive double tracking projects with total price tag of 388900 Million Baht have to be implemented within 3 years

1. Ban Phai - Mukdahan - Nakhon Phanom at 679000 Million Baht (New Line)
2. Denchai - Chiang Rai - Chiang Khong at 85000 Million Baht (New Line)
3. Thanon Jira - Ubon Ratchathani at 36000 Million Baht (Double tracking with popular demands)
4. Hatyai - Padang Besar at 8000 Million Baht (Double tracking with popular demands - Need another 5000 Million Baht for electrification and New EMUs)
5. Khon Kaen - Nong Khai at 26000 Million Baht (Double tracking with popular demands - with the elevated station at Udonthani)
6. Pak Nampho - Denchai at 56000 Million Baht (Double track with lesser priority)
7. Chumporn - Surat Thani at 23000 Million Baht (Double track with lesser priority)
8. Surat Thani - Hatyai - Songkla at 57000 Million Baht (Double track with lesser priority)
9. Ranong - Chumporn at 30000 Million Baht (New Line)

Sadly the section from Denchai to Chiang Mai got the lowest priority due to the issue for the new section to replace the hill section in Khun Tan - not to mention about the long tunnel sections

That's just Red line commuter networks in full which can be considered as the first phase electrification. However, Thailand needs to go further electrification along with the new EMUs and New Electric Locomotives on the existing double track in the following manners:



Bangsue Central - Paknampho (243 km at 33,626.73 Million Baht with travel time of 2 hours and 20 minutes - the cost directly related to Electrification alone will be 28,720,240,462 Baht - EIRR at 7.01% - Not quite good

Bangsue Central - Nakhon Ratchasima - Thanon Jita (257 km at 34,956.42 Million Baht with travel time of 2 hours and 30 minutes - the cost directly related to Electrification alone will be 23,682,122,249 Baht - EIIR at 13.19% - good - EIRR at 13.19% - good and even JICA consider this route for electric cargo service.

Bangsue Central - Pataya 155 km at 14,932.78 Million Baht with travel time of 1 hours and 30 minutes - the cost directly related to Electrification alone will be 10,127,296,374 Baht - EIRR at 10.55% - not quite good

Bangsue Central - Hua Hin 222 km at 35,377.91Million Baht with travel time of 2 hours and 15 minutes - the cost directly related to Electrification alone will be 33,572,420,609 Baht - EIRR at 13.64% - good

Max Speed is 140 kph with EIRR 13.84 - NESDB would take a serious consideration to implement the second electrification

After the first and second electrification, the third electrification to Phitsanuloke, Khon Kaen and Chumporn are in need

Since the route of Paknampho is not good enough, the electrification of the Northern line should reach Phitsanuloke so as to pick the money maker crude oil train service, since just carrying rice from Paknam Pho is not enough

Expect the new locomotive depot at Kaeng Khoi, Chiang Rak and Pataya - while Bangkok Diesel Railcar depot and Bangsue Locomotive Depot will have to handle electric trains (EMUs and Electric Locomotives) instead)

to make electric train service to be money makers, at least 80 trips a day is in need
https://www.dailynews.co.th/economic/680255
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

for the case of smooth transition from Diesel traction to electric traction, 30% extra expenditure is in need - the issue of PM2.5 smog has become serious reason for switching to electric traction

I think there would be the need to rebuild Padang Besar station (CIQ) itself. When we did our electrified double tracking project of Ipoh-Padang Besar, only the platform part was rebuilt, but not the station itself.
Well, those Hatyai people must lobby so hard for Hatyai electric commuter system as the reason for electrified double tracking to Padang Besar before the revival of Hatyai - Songkla line as well as commuter to Phattalung and Chana

MTJA to grant US$2 mil each to Malaysia and Thailand for petroleum R&D
Bernama September 21, 2019 01:26 am +08


Quote:
BANGKOK (Sept 20): The Malaysia and Thailand Joint Authority (MTJA) will provide an endowment of US$2 million to each Government to support research and development (R&D) in petroleum activities for the Joint Development Area (JDA).

This was announced by Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali to commemorate 40 years of successful collaboration between Malaysia and Thailand.

He said the collaboration through MTJA has benefited both Malaysia and Thailand significantly, including in the creation of jobs and opportunities, growth of supporting industries, and contribution to the energy supply of both countries.

“The success of MTJA in generating revenue for both countries is such that five TSCF (trillions of standard cubic feet) of gas has been produced since first gas was delivered in 2005.

“As at the first half of 2019, US$10.1 billion had been cumulatively remitted to both Malaysia and Thailand, with each country receiving US$5.05 billion.

“I am pleased to share that MTJA will provide an endowment of US$2 million (each) to both governments.

“We trust both countries will continue the legacy of MTJA for the benefit of future generations,” he said at the 40th anniversary of the establishment of MTJA themed “40 Years of Shared Prosperity” here, tonight.

On average, JDA’s gas production that flows into Peninsular Malaysia through the Peninsular Gas Utilisation system accounts approximately 9.0 to 10 per cent of Malaysia’s total average annual gas production.

Present were Thai Energy Minister Sontirat Sontijirawong, Malaysian Co-Chairperson of MTJA Tan Sri Dr Rahamat Bivi Yusoff, Thai Co-Chairman of MTJA Dr Kurujit Nakornthap, Malaysian Ambassador to Thailand Datuk Jojie Samuel, and Ambassador of Thailand to Malaysia Narong Sasitorn.

MTJA, a joint body to assume all rights and responsibilities on behalf of the Malaysian and Thai governments, explores and exploits hydrocarbon resources in the Joint Development Area off Narathiwat and Kota Bharu in the best interests of both countries.

On Feb 21, 1979, Malaysia’s former prime minister Tun Hussien Onn and Thailand’s former prime minister General Kriengsak Chomanan inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Chiang Mai to establish the joint authority.

Meanwhile, Azmin said MTJA has played a key role in driving Malaysia’s growth and development, directly contributing to the wealth and prosperity of the people.

“With tonight’s celebration, I would like to renew Malaysia’s commitment to further strengthen bilateral cooperation between Malaysia and Thailand to continue our efforts in working towards the objectives of the MTJA MoU,” he said.

Azmin also commended MTJA for its efforts in facilitating R&D by Malaysian and Thai universities in the fields of science and technology relating to exploration and exploitation of petroleum and natural resources for the JDA.

“MTJA is considered as one of the more successful and progressive joint authorities with regard to exploration, development and production of oil and gas following the discoveries and commercial production to date,” he said.

Thailand is Malaysia’s fifth largest trading partner globally and second largest within ASEAN. Bilateral trade is growing steadily reaching US$26.2 billion in 2018, an increase of 14.2 percent from 2017.

In terms of investment, as at end-June this year, net foreign direct investment inflows from Thailand stood at US$ 534.6 million, mainly in the services sector.

Thailand is a major investment destination for Malaysian companies in the services and manufacturing sectors with total direct Investment abroad outflows of US$2.5 billion during the same period.

In his speech, Sonthirat said the establishment of MTJA has always been referred to as a unique model of international cooperation and the first success story on joint development of petroleum resources in an overlapping-continental-shelf-claimed area.

“MTJA’s proud achievements have brought about not only the equal financial benefits to both governments, but also the mutual energy security and economic developments to the two nations from the natural gas production from JDA,” he said.

Sonthirat hoped MTJA could serve as a model for dispute settlement, for a peaceful solution and a successful outcome.

“I strongly believe that the 21st century will continue to be a century of maritime delimitation settlements.

“The Gulf of Thailand and the South China Sea, as a whole, are characterized by overlapping claimed areas. In the case of Malaysia and Thailand, I’m very glad that we decided to resolve the conflicting boundary claims amicably through diplomatic negotiation and discussion.

“MTJA could be a good example for other countries, with similar problems of overlapping claims, to emulate,” he said.

Since Japanese government refuses to invest on Northern Line High Speed train (Bangsue Central - Phitsanuloke - Chiang Mai) and Private sector simply ignore to invest on Southern line High Speed train (Bangsue Central - Hua Hin at Bo Fai), the main focus of High SPeed train Networks for Thailand would be High Speed train connecting 3 Airports (Donmueang - Suvannabhum - U-Tapao) and HIgh Speed train to connect with Lao - China Railways (Bangsue Central - Nakhon Ratchasima - Nong Khai)
