Mekong-India Economic Corridor (Concept Paper)

The Mekong-India Economic Corridor (MIEC) involves integrating the four Greater Mekong Countries viz. Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam (here-in after referred as Mekong Countries of MIEC) with India through its east coast. It is proposed to connect Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) with Dawei (Myanmar) via Bangkok (Thailand) and Phnom Penh (Cambodia) and further linking to Chennai in India. Integration with India is likely to add momentum to corridor development due to growing trade and investment linkages between India and Mekong countries. The share of total trade of India with Mekong countries has more than doubled in a span of 15 years. India has signed partial FTA with Thailand and Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (CECA) with Singapore. India’s FTA with ASEAN was signed on 13 August 2009 and FTA with Malaysia as individual country is under negotiation and close to signing.
