The National Council for Peace and Order has adopted a strong stance on policy which places great importance on the promotion and support of trade and investment as well as allowing greater convenience for business operators. This policy stance serves as one of the driving forces which enhance the competitive capabilities of the nation by raising the quality of life for citizens through appropriate regional development. Making great strides towards these efforts, the government has called for the establishment of the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), an organization which is in charged with the implementation of projects in three eastern provinces, namely, Chachoengsao, Chonburi, and Rayong, as well as the incorporation of other provinces in future projects. These projects aim to build from the potential of each province in bolstering communications, transportation, infrastructure development, general needs of business operators, resource sourcing, as well as by providing vital economic links to other sectors. It is therefore necessary to take measures to ensure the development of the EEC which allow it to carry out such measures in an uninhibited and expeditious manner. The results of the EEC and its subsidiary projects offer many benefits including economic reform, which will improve of the quality of life and the well-being of the region as well as the economic and social development as well as the competitiveness of the country as a whole.
