China to bypass Malacca Strait by Kra Isthmus Canal in Thailand

The trade route to the Indian Ocean through the Malacca Strait has the problems of pirates, shipwrecks, haze, sediment and shoals.

Its rate of accidents is twice as high as the Suez Canal and four times higher than the Panama Canal.
An alternative shorter route is to build a canal at Kra IsthmusThailand. It will save shipment costs and time as the route is shortened by 1,000 km.
