|Description||The proposed project will support the governments of Cambodia and the Lao People's Democratic Republic (PDR) in enhancing the competitiveness of towns located along main economic corridors in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS).

|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The project represents the fourth phase of the GMS Corridor Towns Development Initiative, which supports urban development along the main economic corridors. The three economic corridors defined under the GMS framework form a network of important routes that connect some of the GMS' largest cities, including Bangkok, Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City, Kunming, Nanning, and Phnom Penh. The focus on developing towns along economic corridors aims to maximize the benefits of increased trade and traffic flows, including local beneficiary capture, to strengthen their competitiveness and catalyze wider economic growth in the region. The development of environmental infrastructure will promote green growth and climate resilience of these towns in the future. The project will support the first four strategic thrusts of the GMS Strategic Framework 2012 2022: (i) strengthening infrastructure links; (ii) facilitating cross-border trade, investment, and tourism; (iii) enhancing private sector participation and competitiveness; and (iv) developing human resources.|
