Burma power plant canceled

10 01 2012

Regular readers will know that PPT has had several posts (start here for these) on the well-connected Italian-Thai Development company’s huge investment in Tavoy/Dawei in Burma that was a part of a development zone that included a strategy for shifting Thailand’s polluting industries to the west.

The Irrawaddy now reports that one critical element of the development – a coal-fired power station – has been canceled by the Burmese government. The story is well worth reading.
