Greater Mekong Subregion Economic Cooperation

大湄公河次区域经济合作

The Greater Mekong Subegion (GMS) Economic Cooperation is a subregional economic cooperation mechanism involving the six countries located at least partly within the river basin – China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Established in 1992, it is designed to strengthen subregional economic ties and promote economic and social development in the subregion.

大湄公河次区域经济合作是由澜沧江-湄公河流域内的六个国家,即中国、缅甸、老挝、泰国、柬埔寨、越南共同参与的一个次区域经济合作机制,成立于1992年。其宗旨是加强次区域国家的经济联系,促进次区域的经济和社会共同发展。

The program has been sponsored, coordinated and funded mainly by the Asian Development Bank. Its highest decision-making organ is the GMS Summit of Leaders, held every three years and hosted by a member state on the basis of alphabetical rotation. Policy direction for the program is discussed at the Ministerial Conference, under which meetings of senior officials and a range of working groups and forums in priority sectors are convened.

亚洲开发银行是该机制的发起者、协调方和主要筹资方。领导人会议为最高决策机构,每三年召开一次,各成员国按照字母顺序轮流主办。日常决策机构为部长级会议,下设高官会、工作组和专题论坛等。

Since 1992, substantial progress has been achieved in implementing GMS projects in key areas such as transport, energy, power, infrastructure, agriculture, tourism, information and communications, environment, human resources development, and economic corridor development.

该机制成立20多年来,在交通、能源、电力、基础设施、农业、旅游、信息通信、环境、人力资源开发、经济走廊等重点领域开展了富有成效的合作。

China attaches great importance to the GMS economic cooperation, and actively participates in the planning and implementation of projects at different levels and in various fields, in an effort to improve the well-being of all member states.

中国重视大湄公河次区域经济合作,积极参与各层次、各领域项目的规划与实施,为促进各成员国民生和福祉做出了自身贡献。
