Description

Although regional corridors are popular components of regional cooperation initiatives, discussion about their development tends to be relatively general in scope and difficult to pin down in terms of content and implications. This paper elaborates on a simple analytical framework for regional corridors development anchored on the extent to which they are national or regional, and the area of their utilization. The framework is subsequently applied to the Greater Mekong Subregion regional cooperation program.
