The 6th GMS Summit of Leaders adopted the Regional Investment Framework 2022 in Ha Noi, Viet Nam on 31 March 2018. This medium-term pipeline of priority projects consolidates and expands the earlier Regional Investment Framework 2013-2022.

The rolling pipeline comprises more than 200 investment and technical assistance projects, which will require more than $60 billion in financing.

The Greater Mekong Subregion Program supports the implementation of high-priority projects in agriculture, energy, environment, health and human resource development, information and communication technology, tourism, transport, transport and trade facilitation, and urban development. It has been using economic corridors to promote economic growth and development.

Note: Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.
