Thailand may soon be home to the world’s tallest building, as the country has recently revealed plans to build a tower that would surpass the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE. 

Taking to his official X (formerly Twitter) account, Thai Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin shared that he had met with a group of investors led by Emaar Group, one of the largest real estate developer groups in the world. Emaar Group is notably also the company behind building the Burj Khalifa.

The investors also include other Middle Eastern and Chinese companies, such as Broad Group and Vatone Group, to discuss the building of the world’s tallest building in Thailand.

In the post, Srettha stressed that private sector investment is an important factor in stimulating Thailand’s economy for the benefit of the Thai people.

He added that the building would include a large department store, offices, a financial hub, a hotel, and an entertainment centre.

Furthermore, Srettha lauded the project as being able to create considerable investment value and attract tourists.

Meanwhile, as reported by the Thai-based publication Bangkok Post, the group of investors is interested in setting up the megaproject in Thailand’s capital city of Bangkok.

Besides that, Mohamed Alabbar, who founded Emaar, asserted that the megaproject would not be developed by the publicly traded company but by a group of investors that includes him in a personal capacity. The talks are currently in its early stages.
