The private sector in five locations designated for the establishment of special economic zones (SEZs) is set to invest in facilities and infrastructure. 

Somporn Siribhorananint, chairman of Songkhla's Chamber of Commerce, said the private sector is due to meet representatives of the National Economic and Social Development Board next month to discuss in more detail the development of an SEZ in Sadao district.

The chamber also plans to ask the military junta to establish a duty-free shop on Chang Loan Road, which is about three kilometres from the border checkpoint, and a green industrial estate at Padang Besar, where a bonded warehouse and green industries could be allowed to enjoy promotional privileges from the Board of Investment.
