Projects

The 22nd Ministerial Conference in Ha Noi, Viet Nam in September 2017 endorsed the medium-term pipeline of priority projects under the Regional Investment Framework 2022 of the Greater Mekong Subregion Economic Cooperation Program. This consolidates and expands the earlier Regional Investment Framework 2013-2022 and the Revised Regional Investment Framework Implementation Plan 2014-2020.

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

The GMS Program supports the implementation of high-priority projects in 10 program sectors: agriculture, energy, environment, health, telecommunications and information technology, tourism, transport, transport and trade facilitation, urban development, and other multisector and border economic zones. It has been using economic corridors to promote economic growth and development.

Note: Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.
