Project Description

Agriculture sector plays a vital role in reducing rural poverty in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) countries and is considered a priority sector under the GMS Economic Cooperation Program. In July 2002, with the assistance from ADB, the GMS countries established a working group on agriculture (WGA) as a forum for identifying and realizing opportunities to increase cooperation in the agriculture sector among GMS countries. The subject TA was designed to provide initial support and strengthen the momentum for implementation of these initiatives in response to the priorities agreed upon by the GMS countries.

Progress (as of March 2021)
