PHAYAO: Laos will open the Pang Mon checkpoint in Sayaboury province opposite Thailand’s Ban Huak checkpoint in Phu Sang district of this northern border province on Feb 1, provincial chamber of commerce adviser Kongsak Tharanit said on Saturday.
Mr Kongsak said the Sayaboury provincial governor has sent a letter inviting the Chiang Rai governor to lead a 15-member Thai delegation from Chiang Kham and Phu Sang district to attend the opening ceremony.
Kovit Chaimuang, a member of the Phayao Chamber of Commerce, said the new checkpoint will help promote trade, investment and tourism between the two countries.
In February, cyclists from Chiang Kham and Phu Sang district will cross the border into Laos through the Ban Huak checkpoint in Phu Sang district and the Pang Mon checkpoint in Muang Khop of Sayaboury before returning to the Thai side to promote a tourism route. He did not mention the exact date of the activity.
