The ‘Ports Learning Tour’ in Thailand aims to enable senior officials from Bangladesh to learn from Thailand’s successful development of the globally competitive Laem Chabang Port (LCP). The tour aims to bridge skill gaps, enhance knowledge of public-private partnerships (PPP), widen exposure to regional peers, and foster knowledge exchange to support Bangladesh’s port sector reforms. The tour comprises five structured sessions in Bangkok and Laem Chabang.
During these sessions, the delegation will engage with counterparts from the Thai central government and other pertinent private sector stakeholders. The program will delve into government-level management and regulatory systems that influence port operations. Additionally, participants will engage in discussions with key agencies to gain insights into the evolution of Thai container ports, challenges in the container port sector, priority reform measures, and the measurement of key performance indicators.
