GMS Countries Prepare for Summit in China

Delegates from Cambodia, China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam gathered in Laos' capital of Vientiane on Monday to discuss topics and goals of the 2nd Great Mekong Sub-region (GMS) Summit which is to be held in China next year.

During the 2nd Task Force Meeting for the Preparation of the 2nd GMS Summit, the delegates touched upon overall ways of boosting the development of the GMS via closer regional cooperation in major socio-economic fields.

The 1st Task Force Meeting was held in Beijing in late July 2004. The 2nd GMS Summit will take place in the Chinese city of Kunming in early July 2005.

Leaders of six countries sharing the Mekong River gathered in Cambodia for their first Summit on Nov. 3, 2002, mainly to promote further economic cooperation.

The GMS countries, namely Cambodia, China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, have worked together for closer economic ties by speeding up the implementation of the GMS Economic Cooperation Program (GMS Program) since it was initiated by the Asian Development Bank in 1992.
