Irrigation dept bets on big rice harvest this year
May 22. 2020
By The Nation
The Royal Irrigation Department expects more rain this year and a harvest of 24 million tonnes of rice.
Deputy Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives Minister Prapat Pothasuthon said at a meeting, the Rice Policy and Management Committee reckoned that between November 2019 and April 2020, the Chao Phraya River basin would have 5.5 billion cubic metres of water, which would cover 59 per cent of the country’s water supply.
The committee then resolved to boost rice crops over the 2020-2021 period by allocating 59.88 million rai to the grain – 27.5 million rai for jasmine rice, 2.084 million rai for Pathum Thani rice, 13.48 rai for normal rice, 16.25 million rai for sticky rice and 559,000 rai for specific types of rice. All this farmland is expected to produce up to 24.65 million tonnes.
Thongplew Kongjan, director general of the irrigation department, said the Meteorological Department reckons there will be 5 per cent lower than average rain this year, compared to 11 per cent less last year.
Over the past four years, rain in Thailand has been 5 to 10 per cent less than average due to global warming, and this has become a new normal for the rainy season.
Two storms are expected to hit the country between August and October, but rain may be absent between June and July, the Meteorological Department said.
RID is working on all structures under its management and is getting rid of obstacles in water streams to ensure water preservation at full capacity.
'No change in plan for MRO at U-Tapao Airport'
May 22. 2020
By THE NATION
The proposed maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) project at the U-Tapao Airport will proceed as planned despite Thai Airways International (THAI) entering a business rehabilitation programme, Eastern Economic Corridor Office (EECO) secretary-general Kanit Sangsubhan said.
The Bt11-billion project to build an MRO facility at Rayong’s U-Tapao Airport has already been approved by the Cabinet and a contract is expected to be signed in June.
“In early June, project owner the Royal Thai Navy will sign a contract with bid winner BBS Joint Venture, which comprises BTS Group Holdings, Bangkok Airways and Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction,” said Kanit. “Meanwhile, the Aeropolis development project in a 30km radius around U-Tapao Airport was awarded to Narita International Airport Corporation, which is expected to be complete by 2023, coinciding with the opening of the MRO facility.”
There has been wide speculation that the MRO project could be delayed after French aerospace giant Airbus SAS withdrew from the joint venture while THAI is scheduled to enter a business rehabilitation programme after declaring bankruptcy. Kanit explained that “the MRO project will proceed as planned as it is a part of government’s mega-project to develop the Eastern Economic Corridor".
“Airbus pulling out of the joint venture is not a problem, as 4-5 companies have reached out to the EECO expressing their interest in the project,” he added.
The EECO also estimated that following the Covid-19 outbreak, air transport of goods will recover within one and a half years while passenger travel will take two years to return to normal. “Therefore, the outbreak should not affect the project's timeframe, which is scheduled to be completed within 2023,” added Kanit.
