Laem Chabang city status officially announced

Only two months after it was decided in the board to consider draft laws, the upgrade of Laem Chabang to a city municipality was officially announced already. The board meeting on this issue was on April 22, the announcement was signed on May 24 by Deputy Ministry of Interior Bunchong Wongtrairat (บุญจง วงศ์ไตรรัตน์), and then finally published on June 25 [Gazette].

Unlike most of the municipality upgrade announcements, the PDF does not include a map showing the boundaries of the municipality. Though this map seems to be not part of the announcement itself - it has no page number, and is normally accompanied with the announcement by the ministry which looks different than the gazette announcement - in most of the municipal status changes these additional pages are included in the PDF at the Royal Gazette database, even though at a status upgrade the boundaries remain unchanged.
