Pak Bara port delay move raises doubts
To many, a news report that the government has decided to suspend the controversial Pak Bara port plans seems a welcome move. The plans threaten not only the well-being of communities but also the pristine environment in the southern province of Satun.
According to a source at the Ministry of Transport, a decision to shelve the plans was made at a recent meeting chaired by Deputy Transport Minister Pailin Chuchottaworn.
The minister was said to voice concern about the social and environmental impacts of the development.
