Implementation Plan

A Thai land examiner said on state of secrecy that Japanese financial specialists have considered this property development venture as "another chance" to extend business abroad. This comes in the heels of increasing Thai property development, particularly in the townhouse sector.

This will urge outside speculators to take advantage of the property showcase.
