– A proper cost-benefit analysis of infrastructure projects that the government intends to finance a loan of 2 trillion baht, is missing. â € ~ Such investments are huge risicoâ € ™ s connected. The government should revise its priorities and whether the construction of a high speed line is urgent is.â € ™ said this Pairoj Wongwipanant, former Dean of the Faculty of Economics, Chulalongkorn University, yesterday during a forum in Bangkok.

Other criticisms could be heard, was the lack of participation by the population. Sangsit Piriyarangsan, dean of the College of Social Innovation of Rangsit University, said the public should have the opportunity to examine how the funds are spent. If the government fails the selection of executing companies in a transparent way to proceed, she sits in the â € ~ hot seatâ € ™.

– If we are not on the quality of the arguments can win, we’ll try it on the quantity. Thailand has a defense of 1,300 pagea € ™ s established in the Preah Vihear case. Cambodia does more modest with 300 pagea € ™ s. From April 15 to 19 are the two countries before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague for an oral presentation.

Cambodia has stepped to the Court, requesting his verdict from 1962, in which the temple to Cambodia was assigned to reinterpret. The Court wants to elicit a ruling on the two countries claimed 4.6 square kilometers at the temple. According Veerachai Palasai, Thailandâ € ™ s ambassador in The Hague and delegation, the Court has no jurisdiction to give a ruling. The disputed land is a different issue and has nothing to do with the statement from 1962. Let’s hope that the Court also thinks so, but academic Srisak Wallipodom doubts. â € ~ I think Thailand loses. Residents of both countries will suffer the consequences and Thais will most lijden.â € ™
