Adjust font size:

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao Monday made a package of proposals on boosting cooperation among members of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) at the ongoing Third Summit of the GMS.

The following are the key points of his proposals:

Infrastructure development

Wen said the GMS should step up the building of transport corridors and a highway network linking all members of the subregion.

China is ready to work closely with Thailand and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to expedite the building of the Houayxay-Chiang Khong International Bridge along the Kunming Bangkok Highway with the aim to link all the sections of the North-South corridor by 2011, said Wen.

He also called for strengthened cooperation on the Singapore-Kunming Rail Link, pledging some 20 million RMB (2.9 million US dollars) to conduct engineering feasibility study on the missing link of the Eastern Route of the Link.

Wen also proposed formulating a telecommunications development strategy for the subregion to speed up the building of the Information Super Highway, and urged developing power grids integration and power trade to form a unified power market in the subregion.

China will continue to take the lead in building a sub-regional power information database, power cooperation portal website and subregional power planning, said Wen.
