WORLD NEWS Government plans eight new marinas THAILAND: Eight new marinas will be built in Thailand as part of a government plan to turn the country into a marine leisure hub, the Phuket Gazette reports. Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith announced that four marinas will be built in the Andaman Sea and four in the Gulf of Thailand, at least two of which will be capable of handling superyachts. Two will be built in Phuket – a small Asian Marina in Rassada and a larger Kung Bay Marina in Pa Khlok. Construction of the latter is expected to begin early next year, but a ministry source said this was subject to the completion of environmental impact assessments. A further two marinas will be built in the southern province of Phang Nga, two on Koh Sumui island, one in Chonburi on the eastern side of the Gulf, and another in Trat, on the border with Cambodia. The transport minister said it expected to attract domestic and foreign investment for the projects, which will be built on private land. He added that the ministry was collaborating with the customs, revenue and immigration departments to review the country’s regulations on foreign superyachts, which may be revised.
