Pakdee Tanapura Renews Vision To Build Kra Canal, with Russia, India Showing Interest

Appealing to the members of the BRICS countries, Pakdee Tanapura, the leading Thai sponsor of the concept of a Kra Canal linking the Pacific and the Atlantic Oceans, and long-time friend of the LaRouche movement, notified EIR today that he has created a new organization called “O To O,” meaning “Ocean to Ocean,” to revive the Kra Canal effort.

Tanapura says that has little support, especially from potential international investors either in Asia or in the West.
