Project Description

The project will help transform secondary towns in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) eastern economic corridor into economically inclusive, competitive tourism destinations by improving transport infrastructure, urban sanitation, and capacity to sustainably manage tourism growth. It will boost trade in services by promoting cross-border tourism and deepen GMS and Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) regional cooperation and integration. About 168,000 residents are expected to benefit from climate-resilient infrastructure development, improved urban greenspace, cleaner beaches, and better access to economic opportunities.

Ongoing. ADB approved last 7 December 2018. Legal opinions for loan agreement and project agreements to meet conditions of loan effectiveness expected in Q3 2020. Some consultant recruitment started in Q3 2020.
