Statistics in the Greater Mekong Subregion: Growth, Tourism, and Health  

The 4th edition of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) statistical database booklet features two new chapters: tourism and health.

The chapter on tourism includes data on tourist arrivals by regional origin and transport mode; bilateral tourist exchanges within the subregion; supply-side and macro indicators of the sector.

The chapter on health covers demography-related health data; basic health and/or sustainable development goals-related indicators; access to medical workers; and several measures of current health expenditures.

Data in the energy chapter have been completely revised: new data sources were used and a longer time series was constructed for all GMS members. Moreover, additional energy consumption indicators were added.

The chapter on structure of merchandise trade was also updated.

The statistical database booklet is produced by the GMS Secretariat at the Southeast Asia Regional Department of the Asian Development Bank.
