Abstract:

BMI View: The devastating floods in ---- highlighted a deficit in Thailand s flood preventive infrastructure and Thai government has been keen to address to this, however we note that this might be to the detriment of the overall water sector as vital funds are channelled away into flood projects. Thailand has since completed its short-term flood prevention projects, but the country s long-term flood prevention projects are still far from complete. ...The majority of the projects were secured by a foreign company - namely the South Korean consortium - without a local partner. Several events in the past have shown that the Thai public is often determined in preventing projects that are perceived by them to be detrimental to their well-being, by carrying out protests and making it difficult for companies to secure the required land and permits from local residents and governments. This is even more pertinent for projects undertaken by foreign companies without local partnerships, as they are often perceived to have interests that are not aligned with the country. ...Even without disruptions from the public, K-Water s lack of experience with Thailand s water utilities sector could result in lengthy environmental and feasibility studies, which would delay the start of construction works. Meanwhile, the government is also considering the creation of a new water ministry combining the regulatory authority of the central government and the -- river basins across the country and responsible for overseeing the development of a new water management strategy and regulating Thailand s chronically chaotic and under developed water sector.

On June -- ----, the Water and Flood Management Committee had selected a South Korean consortium led by state-owned utility, Korea Water Resources (K-Water), as the preferred bidder for two of the nine modules under the plan, securing the largest share (-- ) of the projects in terms of value ...for its water management and flood prevention scheme, with THB---bn reserved to finance the scheme s nine key modules.

...A stabilising political environment is providing a major boost to investor confidence in the economy, and this could help to deter the government from making any moves that would risk reigniting political tensions. The new government has expressed its commitment to continuing a mix of populist and market-friendly economic policies, which has brought renewed attention to massive public infrastructure projects. ...
