The Lancang-Mekong Cooperation has successfully entered its “growth period” from the initial “incubation period”.

On the basis of supporting 29 projects in the previous two batches, the two sides will sign a cooperation agreement for the 22 projects in the third batch. The areas of cooperation will be further expanded to include medical and health care, science, education, culture and capacity building, which will bring more tangible benefits to the people of Myanmar.
