A view of the Map Ta Phut industrial estate is seen in Rayong province, eastern Thailand, August 31,2010. Thailand's cabinet on Tuesday approved a list of industrial activities deemed harmful to the environment, a step towards ending a dispute that has frozen the activities of scores of plants at the world's eighth-largest petrochemical hub. The plants at the Map Ta Phut estate, home to the world's eighth-largest petrochemicals hub, have been idle for a year, with even construction halted at some, because companies failed to carry out environmental and health assessments.
