The Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) is a natural economic area
bound together by the Mekong River, covering 2.6 million square
kilometers and a combined population of around 326 million.
304 Industrial Park Location offers great perspective to reach the suppliers and the customer effectively. With the GMS subregion project, the road is surrounding by an extensive network for connecting to Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar and China
What is GMS?
The GMS countries are Cambodia, the People's Republic of China (PRC, specifically Yunnan Province and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region), Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao PDR), Myanmar, Thailand, and Viet Nam.
The subregion embraces flora and fauna that have expanded northward
along the Malay Peninsula into Thailand, encroached upon the high
mountains from the Himalayas, or advanced along the broad river valleys
as dry deciduous forests similar to those of India. Ten million years of
changing sea levels have left a rich legacy of unique life forms that
have evolved in isolation on the Cardamom and Annamite mountains of
Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand, and Viet Nam.
These resources provide both income and sustenance to the great majority of people in the subregion who are leading subsistence or near subsistence agricultural lifestyles. The land yields timber, minerals, coal, and petroleum, while water from the many rivers supports agriculture and fisheries and provides energy in the form of hydropower. The coal reserves of the subregion are abundant, and the oil and gas reserves considerable. Most of these are in Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam. These abundant energy resources are still relatively underused.
