Mekong Institute (MI) is an intergovernmental organization (IGO) founded by the six member countries of the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS), namely Cambodia, P.R. China (Yunnan Province and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region), Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. We provide, implement and facilitate integrated human resource development (HRD), capacity building programs and development projects related to regional cooperation and integration.
Managed by GMS national and international staff and supported by international academics, subject-matter experts and consultants, we work with and through various local government authorities, development partners and local organizations to deliver, implement standardized and customized learning programs, workshops, seminars, policy consultation, and research and development projects.
Our goals and strategies support the GMS Cooperation Program and the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), emphasizing enhanced physical connectivity in the GMS economic corridors and the realization of the GMS/AEC target of a single market and production base, equitable growth, and sustainable resource management. Currently, our programs and activities focus on three main thematic areas: Agricultural Development and Commercialization, Trade and Investment Facilitation, and Innovation and Technological Connectivity.
