REGIONAL CORRIDORS DEVELOPMENT: A FRAMEWORK

REGIONAL CORRIDORS DEVELOPMENT: A FRAMEWORK Regional corridors are popular components of regional cooperation initiatives and have been promoted for several years. Yet discussion about development of these corridors tends to be relatively general in scope and difficult to pin down in terms of content and implications. This paper outlines a simple framework for regional corridors development in the context of regional cooperation, anchored on two dimensions of these corridors: the extent to which they are national or regional, and the area of their utilization. The framework is subsequently applied to a specific example, the GMS regional cooperation program, yielding several implications for its future. The framework is also applied towards identifying an appropriate methodology for monitoring performance of regional corridors. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of International Commerce, Economics and Policy World Scientific Publishing Company

Abstract

Regional corridors are popular components of regional cooperation initiatives and have been promoted for several years. Yet discussion about development of these corridors tends to be relatively general in scope and difficult to pin down in terms of content and implications. This paper outlines a simple framework for regional corridors development in the context of regional cooperation, anchored on two dimensions of these corridors: the extent to which they are national or regional, and the area of their utilization. The framework is subsequently applied to a specific example, the GMS regional cooperation program, yielding several implications for its future. The framework is also applied towards identifying an appropriate methodology for monitoring performance of regional corridors.
