The government has planned to develop the country’s road transportation services and routes to support the rising demand for cross-border transportation when the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) comes about in three years.
Land transportation is currently operated and provided by state enterprises.
The opportunity to operate and provide transportation services might be opened for private sectors in the near future, said Mr Somchai.
The direction of future transportation services will still be operated by concessionaires but the ASEAN countries need to have good cooperation to mutually and successfully run cross-border businesses and have each country’s government to initiate and exercise the rules to control their operations.
In preparation for the AEC, Green Corp has improved its services through the development of service quality, staff language abilities and cultural awareness (especially in drivers and bus hostesses) and through using state of the art buses such as NGV buses on popular routes.
Green Corp is also increasing bus service frequency starting with the Chiang Mai – Lampang route (hourly intervals).
“AEC is not far away anymore. With readiness, the company can grow and develop to meet the new competitive environment.
Green Corp has attempted to cooperate with other private transportation providers to improve its networks and to cope with any changes resulting from the AEC,” said Mr Somchai.
