According to media reports, Thailand’s PTT Global Chemical is planning to invest in industrial projects and encourage partnerships with Japanese companies and foreign investors for projects within the scope of the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) project.

The ambitious project, considered as a successor to Thailand’s Eastern Seaboard, is expected to include investment in various industries across an area of 13,285 square kilometers and boost global trade as well as economical cooperation.

Accordingly, the company will reportedly invest in several projects within the next few years. The company’s total investment in the country’s industrial center is estimated to reach around $4 billion.

PTTGC is currently working on a cracker construction project in Map Ta Phut, Thailand as part of its EEC investment plans. The cracker will be able to produce 500,000 ton/year of ethylene and 261,000 ton/year of propylene upon its completion by 2020.
