The governor of Prachuap Khiri Khan Weera Sriwatanatrakul revealed that the province has created the development strategy for the Singkhon border crossing that includes infrastructure development, public utilities development, urban planning, and landscape development.

He said the Singkhon border crossing is envisioned to be the golden gate of ASEAN that pushes the economy forward and will bring prosperity and a stable income to the society by functioning as a tourism destination and the center of trade and investment of ASEAN.

To achieve the goal, the Singkhon border crossing must be upgraded to a permanent border crossing to accommodate the increase in travel and enhance its connectivity to every ASEAN country, said the governor.

He has also mentioned that the province will be waiting for the conclusion of the Thailand - Myanmar Joint Border Committee for the certification of the border line between both countries at the Singkhon border crossing area.

It is expected that the Singkhon border crossing will be officially announced as a permanent border crossing within early this year, said the governor.

Dan Singkhon, until now only famous for it's orchid and furniture market on weekends, is just a 45 min drive away from Ban Krut. From the border to Myeik at the Andaman Sea is it not much more than 100 kilometers.
