Transport Infrastructure and Logistics in the Mekong Region(2017_2_20_005)

The Mekong Region is composed of countries that share a relatively longer land border than other countries in ASEAN. Thus, cross-border logistics has gotten a lot of attention from the business world, but at the same time, it is necessary to pay attention to multimodal transport including air and sea transport when considering trade between the Mekong countries and other countries. In this project, we not only focus on hard infrastructure such as roads, ports, airports and dry ports but also soft infrastructure like cross-border rules, documents and costs.
