According to ADB documents, the Greater Mekong Subregion Economic Cooperation Program Strategic Framework, 2012–2022 stresses the importance of (i) ensuring that all countries in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) are connected to a GMS rail network by 2020, and (ii) promoting the development of a seamless rail network in the GMS as part of a regional cooperation strategy to facilitate cross-border infrastructure development
The TA is in direct response to the GMS member governments' request for ADB assistant to review the rail links and provide advice on suitable financial and investment opportunities. The impact will be greater railway connectivity in the GMS. The outcome will be a suitable investment program prepared for the viable missing rail links. This project is related to closed projects (ADB-42518-012 and ADB-42518-022).

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
