The Ministry of Transport is getting ready for the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015. The Ministry said the airport and roads would be ready to accommodate the integration of this region, although railways are expected to be developed to facilitate regional trades.

Permanent Secretary for Transport Mr. Supot Saplom said after attending a seminar on AEC, that Thai aviation and ports would be ready for the AEC. He added that human resources for the transportation sector were scarce in Thailand and training would be needed.

He further added that Thailand was situated at the heart of the ASEAN region and thus the Kingdom suited to become a transportation hub. Discussions over the driving licenses for cross country drivers will be held at a later date.
