Event Summary

Due to the influence of COVID-19, the global economy has fluctuated significantly, and international logistics has changed dramatically in that there are obstacles in supply chain and changes in production bases. Regarding the logistics in ASEAN region, which is also suffering from such rough waves, we grasp the current situation and discuss the emerging issues and challenges mainly in Thailand, with introducing the transportation infrastructure development plan including the “Land Bridge” in the Southern Economic Corridor (SEC) and referencing cases from all over the world.
