Crossrail International’s Paul Dyson and Martin Rowark were guest attendees at a joint Thai Ministry of Transport and British Embassy Bangkok workshop held on 25 March 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand, promoting collaboration for infrastructure development between Thailand and the UK.
“Why Transport Matters” was the theme for the one-day workshop, held at the British Ambassador’s Residence at the British Embassy. A series of presentations were made to Thailand’s Minister of Transport, H.E.
