Regional Investment Framework 2023-2025

As the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) program enters its third decade of cooperation, the GMS Leaders endorsed and adopted the Greater Mekong Subregion Economic Cooperation Program Strategic Framework 2030 (GMS-2030) at the 7th GMS Summit. In their Joint Statement, the GMS Leaders mandated the GMS Ministers and Senior Officials to develop a realistic and implementable pipeline of projects that support the strategic and operational priorities of GMS-2030. Furthermore, GMS-2030 commits that the GMS regional pipeline will be revised to raise the standard for project inclusion to increase its appeal to development partners and the private sector. Projects-based development remains a comparative advantage of the GMS program and having a concrete pipeline of priority projects will provide opportunities for attracting co-financing.
