GMS Economic Cooperation Program: Regional Investment Framework 2022

Institutional Document | September 2017

The Regional Investment Framework 2022 (RIF 2022) is the medium term pipeline of priority projects in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS). It is a consolidation and expansion of the earlier Regional Investment Framework (2013-2022) and continues to operationalize the strategic priorities of the GMS Program under the GMS Strategic Framework (2012-2022) and the Hanoi Action Plan 2018-2022 (HAP).

The RIF 2022 covers a wide range of sectors including transport, energy, environment, agriculture, health and human resource development, information and communication technology, tourism, transport and trade facilitation, and urban development. This pipeline is intended to be used as an instrument to have greater alignment between regional and national planning for GMS projects and as a tool to galvanize new financing for projects.
