The EEC is an organization which focuses on the implementation of infrastructural development projects and seamless operation of transportation in providing vital linkages for air, land, rail and sea routes. In doing so it bolsters competitive abilities in offering reduced transportation times and considerably cheaper costs.
This is made possible via 2 projects:
Linking the EEC to regional airways through the development of the Eastern Aviation Specialized Zone and the Eastern Airport City, which serves to raise Thailand to an unprecedented level as a central hub for aviation and air logistics industries. Upon completion, this will provide passengers with connections to major airports (Don Muang, Suvarnabhumi and U-Tapao Airports) via high-speed trains allowing for travel times between the EEC and Bangkok of less than 1 hour.
Linking transportation of Thai goods with other regions through the development of dual-track railways between China, Lao P.D.R., Thailand, and Cambodia, which is made possible through the implementation of automated transport and seamless operation systems housed at the new distribution center located in Chachoengsao. It is from this point that goods can be seamlessly connected to Laem Chabang Port Phase III, or the Map Ta Phut Industrial Port Phase III, with additional services aiming at placing the EEC in the spotlight as the global leader of tourism by developing a cruise port at the Sattahip Commercial Port.
