The government's 2-trillion-baht borrowing bill for infrastructure development is expected to get the nod from parliament this year, says Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Kittiratt Na-Ranong.

Mr Kittiratt was speaking Tuesday on the sidelines of a seminar entitled "Moving Forward: 2-Trillion-Baht Projects Driving Thailand to Match Global Standards".
