- +

The Anti-Corruption Organisation of Thailand has asked the government to disclose all information about its investment in megaprojects, even though it may be legally confidential, chairman Pramon Sutivong said. 

The government has designated its investment in a new tollway between Bang Pa-In in Ayutthaya and Nakhon Ratchasima as a pilot project for the joint examination of graft by the public and private sectors. The estimated cost is 84.6 billion baht.

After a meeting with finance and transport ministers, Mr Pramon said on Wednesday the government has already drafted  the PM's office regulation on procurement for the project. It allows the appointment of observers and examiners, including representatives from the private sector.
