Thai transport chief drives infrastructure plan in race against clock

Minister of Transport Arkhom Termpittayapaisith

BANGKOK -- Thailand's economist-turned-transport minister is working every angle to bring an ambitious infrastructure plan to fruition, seeking to put the country on a sure path to economic growth before the military junta hands off power.

     After years of failed efforts, the current government is taking real steps to overhaul Thailand's ailing infrastructure, Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith said Monday, vowing that 20 priority projects worth 1.8 trillion baht ($51 billion) would not be delayed any longer.
