Such development addresses a multisectoralperspective, spatial development options, and practical infrastructure, humanresource, policy, regulatory and institutional barriers to trade, investment, and themovement of goods and people.

Phitsanulok is one of the Northern provinces that hassufficient infrastructure and transportation network, covering road, rail, air, water, andpipe transportation modes. It is therefore appropriate for Phitsanulok to be adistribution center of Indo-China intersection that may serve trade/commodity flowamong Greater Mekong Sub-region countries. This study is aimed at 1) locating theappropriate location of a distribution center, 2) studying behavior of commodity flow,and 3) promoting and increasing awareness of business competitive advantage tofarmers, agricultural sector, and private sector.
