Title: Death knell for Thailand's Dawei project?
Date: 21 November, 2013
Associate Professor Sean Turnell was quoted in an article in the Straits Times, talking about the future of Thailand's Dawei project: Death knell for Thailand's Dawei project?
Excerpt: Professor Sean Turnell of Australia's Macquarie University, a specialist on Myanmar's economy, wrote in an e-mail: "The Dawei project is a dead man walking."
"No one except the Thai government really wants it."
He added that it offered little more than rent payments to Myanmar. "These were of interest to Myanmar's old rent-seeking military regime, but are not so attractive to a government trying to deliver real transformational growth and employment."
