17 August 2012
Ch. Karnchang Plc (CK), Thailand’s third-largest contractor by market value, has its eye on infrastructure projects in Burma and Vietnam, its chief executive, Plew Trivisvavet, said on Thursday. According to The Bangkok Post, the company, which is currently on track to begin constructing the controversial Xayaburi hydroelectric project in Laos this year, is considering bidding for road, dam and tap- and waste-water treatment projects in Burma. The company said that it hasn’t stopped work on the Xayaburi project, despite an official suspension in response to environmental concerns.
