The Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEAT) has prepared potential industrial areas to accommodate investment in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), which covers the three eastern provinces of Chachoengsao, Chonburi and Rayong.

IEAT acting governor Attapon Jirawatjanya said there are 31 industrial estates covering a total area of 44,600 acres in the EEC. He said they can accommodate a total investment value of Bt1.31 trillion.

Attapon said the IEAT has already allocated areas in 21 industrial estates to accommodate target industries.

The IEAT has also prepared potential industrial areas of more than 4,300 acres to accommodate immediate investments in this region and will develop additional industrial estate areas of almost 6,000 acres.
