This is a bit misleading as Loei, apart from being in an isolated area, is separated from China by Laos – the area to the north of the red spot – and unless there are other plans which involve using, say, the Mekong, it is difficult to work out what extra connection this new and expensive center gives to China.
This may well be true.
But there simply is not that much trade between Laos and Thailand. China is the goal and this project does not appear to be the most feasible way of making that connection.
