EEC megaproject draws flak from residents

The Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) is a well-known flagship megaproject of the military government. The project aims to turn most of the land in the three provinces of Chachoengsao, Chon Buri and Rayong into industrial zones.

When completed, the project is expected to change the face of these provinces, especially Chachoengsao, known as a rich agricultural zone. It’s been reported that around 18 plots spanning 35,788 rai in the EEC will be developed into new industrial estates.
