Project Description

The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will operationalize initiatives that catalyze trade and cross border investment (internationalization) by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) between India and countries in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), contributing to enhanced regional integration and higher and more inclusive growth in both the GMS and South Asian regions. It will focus on Cambodia, Thailand, and Viet Nam among countries in the GMS. The TA builds on recommendations of analytical studies that looked at the potential and challenges of connecting SMEs across Cambodia, India, and Thailand.
