Cooperation among the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) countries has intensified in recent years. By the end of 2012, the program had mobilized $15.5 billion in investment projects and $311 million in technical assistance (TA), of which ADB's support amounted to $5.5 billion for investments and $108.2 million for TA. This study summarizes a recent major initiative to assess the initial impact of ADB-supported projects under the GMS Program. As part of this exercise, a range of representative projects in the road transport, health, tourism, and energy sectors were selected for detailed analysis, and research institutes working with international consultants assessed their socioeconomic impact.

About the Author
About the Asian Development Bank ADB’s vision is an Asia and Pacific region free of poverty. Its mission is to help its developing member countries reduce poverty and improve the quality of life of their people. Despite the region’s many successes, it remains home to approximately two-thirds of the world’s poor: 1.6 billion people who live on less than $2 a day, with 733 million struggling on less than $1.25 a day. ADB is committed to reducing poverty through inclusive economic growth, environmentally sustainable growth, and regional integration. Based in Manila, ADB is owned by 67 members, including 48 from the region. Its main instruments for helping its developing member countries are policy dialogue, loans, equity investments, guarantees, grants, and technical assistance.
