Development of the Dawei deepwater port has stalled because of planning uncertainties and conflicts with potential investors, Transport Minister Chadchat Sittipunt admitted Monday. 

The minister, who heads a sub-committee on infrastructure development in the Myanmar-based Dawei special economic zone, said the Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning had yet to study several key aspects of the project.
