SBPAC Discusses Southern Border Provinces Development with ICRC

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is ready to assist development in the southern border provinces to improve local people’s quality of life.

The Deputy Secretary-General of the Southern Border Provinces Administrative Center (SBPAC), Associate Professor Bordin Rassameethes, discussed directions for southern border provinces development with Mr. John Patrick Norton, ICRC representatives. The discussion was held at a meeting on 20 July 2021 via a videoconference.

Associate Professor Bordin proposed that ICRC help ease the problem concerning marketing for farmers and small business operators in the deep South, as ICRC has extensive networks at both regional and global levels.

The ICRS representative agreed to consider the proposal, saying that ICRC took this opportunity to obtain more information about various projects on southern border provinces development for close cooperation with SBPAC.

At the meeting, SBPAC explained that it has been implementing various development projects covering six strategies. The strategies seek to develop the local economy, processing industry, fisheries, tourism, border trade, and economic management system.

These projects also involve social and human resource development, linking with other parts of the country, as well as neighboring countries. They aim to generate employment and income for local residents.

SBPAC also talked about the development of the deep South under the project "Triangle of Stability, Prosperity, and Sustainability.” In this project, model cities have been developed to create greater opportunities for local people in the southern border provinces.
