Thailand has undergone a rapid economic boom since the 1970s. This path was traversed in a very much shorter period than, for example, in Taiwan or South Korea. Despite the current political instability and only 5% growth, the expansion of the industrial sector continues to be promoted; alongside tourism it accounts for 45% of the gross national product. Therefore, investment is being made in the development of the infrastructure. Several large railway construction projects are planned in the next 5 years in order to network Thailand’s big cities with the less developed rural areas. The Strabag Group will supply a major part of the equipment for the rail network.
