Thailand and Myanmar have agreed on an infrastructure development plan of the Dawei special economic zone (Dawei SEZ) whose construction is underway in Southeast Myanmar.

Thai Deputy Prime Minister cum Finance Minister Kittiratt Na-Ranong and Myanmar Vice President Nyan Tun, who co-chaired the meeting of the Joint High-Level Committee (JHC) of the Dawei SEZ on June 17 told the press that the development plan focuses on roads connecting the Dawei to the Kanchanaburi border area, a small-sized sea port, a natural gas-fuelled power plant, reservoirs and industrial estates.
