Backgrounder: Greater Mekong Subregion Economic Cooperation
font size    

Since 1992, the countries of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), including Cambodia, China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, have embarked on a program of economic cooperation which aims to promote development through closer economic links.

The GMS Program, with support from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and other donors, helps the implementation of high priority subregional projects in transport, energy, telecommunications, environment, human resource development, tourism, trade, private sector investment and agriculture.

Substantial progress has been achieved in terms of implementing GMS projects over the past 14 years. By the year 2005, priority infrastructure projects worth around 5.2 billion U.S. dollars have either been completed or are being implemented.

Among these are the upgrading of the Phnom Penh (Cambodia) - Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) highway and the East-West Economic Corridor that will eventually extend from the Andaman Sea to Vietnam's beach resort of Da Nang. A significant amount of resources has also been mobilized for the GMS Program.
