OUTSOURCED BUSINESS AND STORIES
 

Thailand is an emerging economy and is considered a newly industrialised country. It is the 2nd largest economy in Southeast Asia after Indonesia. As of 2017 Thailand has 37 million registered vehicles, 20 million of them motorbikes. Thailand's Ministry of Transport has recently announced plans to build 5,000 km of highways and motorways... How many tons of aggregate would you need for such a massive operation? 

 
 
 
DID YOU KNOW THAT...?
 

... Eduardo Fairbairn, RILEM member since 1990, together with Miguel Azenha inaugurated the era of remote RILEM TC meetings? Although nowadays it seems normal for meetings and even conferences to be made using remote meeting applications, this was not the case in 2013 when the TC-254 “Thermal cracking of massive concrete structures” held 9 in-person meetings and 6 web-meetings.
