Publication Date



The paper starts with a brief introduction to the concept of an economic corridor as background to outlining the characteristics, advantages and disadvantages, opportunities and difficulties in the development of the Kunming-Lao Cai-Hanoi-Haiphong Economic Corridor, one of the two economic corridors and one coastal economic belt that were approved by the governments of Vietnam and China in June 2006 for the development of the two countries and the region as a whole. The paper argues that this corridor has good prospects because of its important role in ASEAN China economic relations, and because of the strong political will on the part of both China and Vietnam.
