India shows interest in Dawei

singh yingluckThe ailing Thailand-backed Dawei industrial complex in Myanmar could get a second wind. On May 30, during the first day of his two-day trip to Thailand, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that his country was interested in investing in the Myanmar port city, a special economic zone that would bridge the Bay of Bengal with Southeast Asia.

The announcement signifies that India has given attention to bridging regional linkages and values Dawei as the cornerstone to promote regional logistics.

Singh also invited Thailand to consider northwestern Indian states as candidates for Thai investors, acknowledging the region as having similar potential to connect India with the region.

Increased bilateral relations between the two nations will elevate Thailand as the main gateway into ASEAN for India, Singh said.

“Thailand’s ‘Look West’ and India’s ‘Look East’ policies will be pivotal for the development of the Thailand-India relationship towards a strategic partnership,” he said.

During the meeting between the two leaders, numerous documents were signed, including a long-awaited extradition treaty which brightens the prospects for India to get custody of notorious criminals such as Syed Muzakkir Mudassar Hassan, an associate of Dawood Ibrahim, head of the organised crime syndicate D-Company, who is kept in a Thailand jail.

Memorandums of Understanding on space cooperation as well as education were also signed.

India also affirmed its intentions to help Myanmar in the development of road links and bridges within the country, while Thailand has agreed to focus on connecting via Myanmar’s western border.

The two premiers also brought up the establishment of a comprehensive free-trade agreement.
