TAK: The Interior Ministry is set to propose a new regulation to develop Mae Sot district into a special economic zone at the cabinet meeting in Uttaradit province on Monday.
Deputy Interior Minister Chatt Kuldiloke revealed the plan before attending a meeting on Sunday evening. He was speaking while visiting the districts of Mae Sot, Mae Ramat and Phop Phra in Tak this morning.
Pol Lt Gen Chatt said he had been assigned by Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to inspect areas to be used as construction sites for future development projects as the government wanted to turn the districts into a special economic and administrative zone to support border trade with Myanmar and respond to the formation of the Asean Economic Community (AEC) in 2015.
