This map shows both the ongoing and planned/potential projects of China’s Belt and Road Initiative in Thailand since China and Thailand signed the BRI contract. The projects categories vary but with a focus on infrastructures, such as high-speed railway as part of Kunming-Singapore Railway project, Greater Mekong Subregion highways, and the Kra Canal, which all have strategic importance to China’s economic developments. Shown in grey is the Thai Government’s special economic zone — Eastern Economic Corridor. The overlap between the corridor and China’s BRI projects demonstrate the potential benefits of this collaboration, both politically and economically.
