BANGKOK (AP) - Myanmar's president has agreed to boost economic cooperation with Thailand and connect a planned industrial zone to his neighbor on his first visit to Thailand since assuming power.
President Thein Sein said Monday in Bangkok that the two countries have agreed to improve transportation routes between them. They intend to build a cross-border corridor linking Thailand's established Eastern Seaboard industrial zone on the Gulf of Thailand with a planned Thai-built seaport and industrial project in the Myanmar town of Dawei on the Andaman Sea.
Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said her country was ready to support Myanmar as it trains workers, promotes economic reform and upgrades basic infrastructure.
Thein Sein has initiated a series of economic and political reforms since assuming the presidency in 2011.
