Planning Expo 2020 in Thailand
Planning for Expo 2020 in Thailand - be submitted to BIE on 1 Jan 2011:
There are 3 proposed sites for Expo 2020:
1. Ayutthaya in Bang Pa In District on 1200 Rai of Government Land
Pro: Closed Proximity with BKK with convenient transportation by Kanchanaphisek outer ring, expressway and Donmuang Airport
Con: Vunerable to the Flood just as happened today
2. Chiang Mai in Mae Rim District on the 1200-1500 Rai of Treasury Dept Land
Pro: Experience with World Horticulture Expo givign agood impression of Chiang Mai
Con: Poor Transportation system and the Limited Space of Chiang Mai International Airporrt
3. Chonburi in Bang Lamung District near Pataya on 1200 Rai of Private Sector land
Pro: Not far from Suvannabhum - with convenient transportation by extension of Airport Link and Bangkok Motorway - hotels in Pataya are ready for visitors
Con: Poor image of Pataya as a vice city where Mafiya and other dons reign supreme.
AECOM would be a consultant company to pick the ultimate one in Feb 2011 along with the consults and negotiation from the local people
Due to the success of Thai Pavillion during Shanghai Expo 2010 to be one of the top 10 most visited pavillion (6.49 million peoiple visited Thai Pavillion), it has inspired Thai goverment to apply to setting up the Beilieve in Thailand 2020 ...

Displaying at a World Exposition and hosting a grand event are two different worlds. I believe that before the Thai authorities become excited about even considering such a dream....Thailand needs to get it's political and social affairs in order, first and foremost.

Reason for less prospect for Thailand for Expo 2020 is due to the fact that Ai Maew is trying to please the host [UAE] as the exchange for asylum in UAE
Democrat grilling PT men to get serious about becoming a host for Expo 2020
Now, Thailand has been disqualified from competing for EXPO 2020 - 400 Million Baht waste of money after the government just want to please those in Dubai as the exchange for Asylum
Democrat started but PT men destroyed since it was not initiated by PT men

Khun Korn gone mad after Thailand has withdrawn from competing for Expo 2020 just to please the Sultan who gives Ai Maew an asylum
All silent on withdrawal from expo bid, BAMRUNG AMNATCHAROENRIT, THE NATION, 13/06/13
BANGKOK: -- All parties involved with Thailand's failed bid to host the World Expo 2020 have declined to explain to the public why the Kingdom apparently just opted out of the race. The Bureau of International Expositions (BIE) on Tuesday decided to cut Thailand from the list of five contenders, as the government failed to submit an official confirmation.
On his Facebook page, former finance minister Korn Chatikavanij said it was a pity that Thailand was disqualified. He attributed this to the government's lack of professionalism. "The Yingluck [Shinawatra] government did not take this seriously, maybe because this was initiated by the [previous] Democrat government. Or the government might not see any benefits from this. Or it might want to pave the way for Dubai" to win the bid, he said.
The government has shown reluctance to support the bid, though at the same time confirming that Thailand would fight for the hosting rights. In February, there was a discussion over the huge investment, estimated at US$1 billion (Bt30 billion). Prime Minister's Office Minister Nivatthamrong Boonsongpaisal at that time said the government was assessing the worthiness of investing in a bid to stage the World Expo.
Yesterday, Nivatthamrong turned off his mobile phone. Nopparat Maythaveekulchai, the new president of Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), did not answer calls from media either. Nopparat had insisted on May 29 that the bid was on track and Thailand was one of the candidates. Some Democrat MPs also pressured the government for an explanation, to justify the Bt400 million that has been dispensed to raise awareness of the expo among the Thai public in the past year.
The previous Democrat government under prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva initiated the expo bid, announcing in Shanghai that Thailand was ready to host the world event. In fact, Thailand was the first country to announce its candidacy officially. The effort weakened after Yingluck came to power, with the dismissal of TCEB president Akrapol Sorasuchart.
Insiders said the BIE came to the decision on Tuesday because of poor support from the government. In January, the BIE Enquiry Mission visited Ayutthaya, which was to be the expo venue. Insiders said the team got an unsatisfactory welcome from the government and felt the administration was insincere in its quest to be the host. Acting TCEB president Thongchai Sridama also failed to meet up with the team.
Some insiders say former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra strong-armed his younger sister Yingluck to back away from the expo bid so that Dubai - where he has spent time during his exile - could win the race. Now, only four cities are vying for Expo 2020, and the result will be known in November. Aside from Dubai, they are Yekaterinburg, Russia; Izmir, Turkey; and Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Ai Pueng declines to tell the press why Thailand has withdrawn from Expo competition - yet we DO know that it is all about politicking - In exchange for the asylum in Dubai and UAE, AI maew telling Yinglxu and his men to force Thailand to withdraw from competition to allow Dubai to win
How Yinglux, Ai Pueng and PT men ignoring Expo in Thailand - she cannot deny the responsibility due to this letter
