In her speech, Madame Pan Peng stated that China-Thailand cooperation is facing important opportunities. The construction of China-Thailand High-Speed Rail Project has started, and as the high-speed rail plan shows, Nakhon Ratchasima is at the hub of the high-speed rail network. It is believed that Nakhon Ratchasima will benefit greatly as the ties between China and Thailand become closer and closer.
