The Regional Investment Framework, 2013-2022 puts into operation the Greater Mekong Subregion Economic Program Strategic Framework, 2012–2022, which was was approved at the 4th GMS Summit of Leaders in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar in December 2011.

GMS Ministers endorsed a pipeline of potential investment and technical assistance projects under the Regional Investment Framework at the 19th Ministerial Conference in Vientiane, Lao PDR on 11 December 2013. The Regional Investment Framework, 2013-2022 covers a wide range of sectors: transport, energy, agriculture, environment, human resource development, urban development, tourism, transport and trade facilitation, information and communication technology, and other multisector/cross-border economic zones.

As a comprehensive, forward-looking, and strategic framework, the Regional Investment Framework embodies the collective aspiration of the GMS countries to expand and deepen their cooperation program in the coming decade. It is also a living framework that will be regularly reviewed and updated to maintain its relevance and responsiveness as a planning tool for subregional initiatives in an ever-dynamic subregion.
