Transportation infrastructure and services are enablers of economic growth that Thailand has worked hard to enhance since a military-backed government came to power in the wake of a coup in 2014. Transportation and storage GVA accounted to 5.8% of GDP in 2018. The sector employed 1.38mn people, accounting for nearly 4% of total employment in the country in 2018. Passenger air transport is booming because of Thailand’s robust tourism industry, while urbanisation is driving demand for rail-based urban mass transit transport to replace buses and private vehicles. Road haulage is the dominant form of freight transportation in the country, a reality the government has been working to change, giving preference to rail and marine freight modes. Boosting rail freight, in particular, is seen as a way to promote economic development in border regions.
