Chinese survey boats arrive in Chiang Rai to resume survey of Mekong river



Seven Chinese survey vessels have arrived in Chiang Rai province from southern province of Yunnan reportedly to resume survey of the Mekong river as an integral part of the project to expand river navigation from southern China downstream to Myanmar, Thailand and Laos.

Chief of the Chinese survey team, Mr Lieu Jian, said the team would survey 15 points in the Mekong river from the Golden Triangle in Chiang Saen district downstream to Wiang Kaen district. The entire task would take 55 days.

CCC Second Harbour Consultant of Yunnan was commissioned to undertake the survey, using three big vessels and four smaller boats.

Chief of the Mekong river task force Cholathai Rattanaruang said the Navy and officials from the Marine Department would monitor the operations of the Chinese vessels to ensure that they abide by conditions specified in the agreement.

But environmental groups in Chiang Rai such as the Hak Chiang Khong group are opposed to the Mekong river navigation project for fear that rapids in the river which are the traditional habitat for fish will be blasted to expand the river navigation lane.

The survey will focus on four aspects namely hydrology which covers river channel, current speed and depth of the river; geological aspect which covers rapids, islets and topography; engineering and environmental aspects.

Just got back from Chiang Saen and the first thing to point out is that the survey vessels (if that's what they are) in the photo are no longer on display in main Chiang Saen but are, allegedly moored up in the new international port down river and punters are not allowed near them.

So, a bit of a wasted trip really but the about to be fostered grand child enjoyed the ice creams.

I'm surprised the Chinese have seven survey vessels spare, what with the SCS needing mapping.

Looks like a few hundred marines under the boats tarpaulin and a missile launcher further back.

Clever and manipulating PR.
Presenting themselves benevolent and altruistic as such applies to the region.

Wonder how many are buying into it.

China owns the gift shop so needs a fast flowing river to deliver its gifts to Burma, Thailand and Laos. Why is this in the Thai news I here you say? To show off to the world especially America that the Junta is in bed with China now! China's our friend so all you talk of human rights UN bs you can shove up Trumps bum. Thailand is big buddies with China and Russia, so there!

You're on drugs, right? Perhaps a review of a map of the Mekong river might be in order....

Too many are absorbed in the usual mind manipulating stimulant of the dominant paradigm, which is comforting and quite sufficient.
