The Joint Committee for the Cross-Border Transport Facilitation Agreement (CBTA) met in Chiang Mai, Thailand on 16 December 2016. The committee said it will pursue a practical approach of "early harvest" CBTA implementation through the launch of GMS Road Transport Permits and Temporary Admission Documents for commercial vehicles starting in 2017, alongside a more comprehensive CBTA updating process, to include the extension of the current network of corridors, routes and border crossings under CBTA Protocol 1.
