This publication contains comprehensive information on numerous facets of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) such as country profiles, projects, investment climate and opportunities, foreign investment procedures and customs, regulatory framework, support networks, travel, accommodations and more. Designed to stimulate interest in and attract investors to the region, the information is presented in the context of regional opportunities and strategies as opposed to individual countries. Also included are tables and figures demonstrating information such as exports and imports, GDP growth and foreign investments. As a result of the recent economic crisis in Asia, the last chapter in the book explores the key concepts of competitiveness and how firms in the subregion should respond to the emerging business challenges and trends. Countries in the GMS include Cambodia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam and Yunnan Province in China.
