Date:

Share post:


Thailand is considering building a 102 kilometer long canal across itself. Supported by China, the project would bypass the Malacca Strait, saving 1200 kilometers in travel distance, while allowing Chinese vessels to avoid the US military presence in the region. However, it would cost 28 billion dollars and has drawn opposition from Singapore, who is worried the canal would destroy its role as a maritime hub.
