Mae Sot, Tak Province, Thailand, September 16, 2015
Tak residents have refused to relocate after authorities declared state land in the province’s special economic zone (SEZ) must be taken back from encroachers to pave the way for new city planning projects.
The government plans to develop SEZs in 10 provinces, six of which have been designated in the initial phase: Tak, Sa Kaeo, Trat, Mukdahan, Songkhla and Nong Khai.
City authorities in Tak want to build roads, public transport depots and other utilities for the economic zone, and say they need land occupied by residents to do so.
