Initiatives for sub-regional programmes

ADB has actively supported trade facilitation over the years as a means to increase investment and trade, within the context of significantly contributing to poverty reduction in Asia and the Pacific. Trade facilitation remains a key component of ADB’s subregional programs: Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC), South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation (SASEC), Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), Brunei Darussalam-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA).
