Project Description

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Economic Community (AEC) vision of an integrated Southeast Asian community --- a single market and production base --- rests on the free flow of goods, services, investments, capital, and skilled labor among member states. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is promoting AEC's vision by enhancing transport and trade facilitation (TTF) through three subregional groupings supported by ADB: (i) the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Economic Cooperation Program, (ii) the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT), and (iii) the Brunei Darussalam-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA). Strengthening TTF to enable cheaper and faster transport across borders has been a priority in the GMS, where member countries approved a program of action for TTF at the 16th Ministerial Conference in Ha Noi in August 2010 to guide their cooperation in this area.
