Strengthening Pathways for Sustained Progress in the GMS

30 June 2011  | Vientiane, Lao People’s Democratic Republic

The 3rd Economic Corridors Forum (ECF-3) carried the theme "Strengthening Pathways for Sustained Progress in the GMS" to chart future action in infrastructure, logistics, transport and trade facilitation, agriculture, industry, and tourism. Drawing on results from earlier symposia, the forum agreed on actions on specific issues common to the three economic corridors of the Greater Mekong Subregion, such as impediments and measures to enhance transport and trade facilitation, logistics development and cross-border economic links, lack of operational connection along certain routes, and lack of border crossing facilities.
