Governor Phongsak Wangsamer said after the fifth meeting of the committee on border cooperation with China, Laos and Myanmar, that the meeting was focused on three issues, firstly trade and investment development between Chiang Saen special economic zone and the Golden Triangle special economic zone in Laos’ Bor Kaew province and between Chiang Khong and Laos’ Huay Xai special economic zone.
Governor Phongsak Wangsamer also proposed for Chiang Rai Province to make an adjustment of opening and closing times of each checkpoint to be at the same time and to upgrade border posts to be on the same level so as to boost trade and tourism between the four countries.
According to Governor Phongsak, the province has hastened the preparation of three special economic zones in the districts of Mae Sai, Chiang Saen and Chiang Khong to be able to operate by October 2015.
