Project Number: 34390-013


ADB played a leading role in Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) cooperation in the power sector by financing a regional indicative master plan for power interconnection, which included interconnection between Cambodia and Viet Nam. Subregional electricity trade was expected to provide significant economic and environmental benefits to individual countries and to the subregion. Power trade would reduce GMS members’ national investments in power reserves to meet peak demand, supply a reliable source of electricity, reduce operating costs, lower emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants, and increase consumers’ access to the cheapest sources of electricity in the subregion.
