The cabinet has approved a proposal to develop Mae Sot district in Tak province into a special economic zone on the Thai-Myanmar border. 

The National Economic and Social Development Board (NESDB) proposed the project to support the formation of the Asean Economic Community in 2015 and to develop the country's East-West Economic Corridor.
