BANGKOK, Sept. 30 (Xinhua) -- The Thai cabinet meeting had already approved to the Ministry of Industry's proposal to develop a smart park estimated at 2.37 billion baht (75 million U.S. dollars) in Thailand's eastern coastal province of Rayong, said deputy government spokesperson Ratchada Thanadirek on Wednesday.
The project is part of the Thai government's flagship Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) infrastructure program and is aimed to woo advanced industries, such as robotics, aviation, digital and medical businesses.
The tech park will occupy 221 hectares of land and will take three years to complete construction.
Ratchada said the government hopes that the Rayong Smart Park will create an estimated 7,459 new jobs and cash flow of 1.342 billion baht (42.5 million U.S. dollars) per year.
It is expected to draw industrial investment of 53 billion baht (1.68 million U.S. dollars). Enditem
