The government will focus on a three-pronged strategy for infrastructure development in Thailand to enhance connectivity with the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), says Transport Minister Chadchat Sittipunt. 

Speaking at the Greater Mekong Investment Forum, Mr Chadchat said the development strategy entails developing basic domestic infrastructure, providing funding for infrastructure development in neighbouring countries and enhancing cultural exchanges.
