New Construction market report from Business Monitor International: "Thailand Infrastructure Report Q4 2014"
Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/24/2014 -- The near-term outlook for Thailand's construction and infrastructure sectors has improved due to greater political and policy certainty. However, the long-term outlook for both sectors remains highly uncertain due to the potential for further project delays, revisions and cancellations from political and financing factors.
Key Trends And Developments
- In June 2014, the military junta scrapped the country's THB350bn long-term water management and flood prevention scheme, with the projects under the scheme being reviewed and revised by the junta (cited from the Nation).

Construction on this second expansion phase was supposed to start in December 2014 and be completed by end-2016, with the tendering process for consultancy companies already underway.
