The Ayeyawady - Chao Phraya - Mekong Economic Cooperation Strategy (ACMECS) is a cooperation framework between Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam to use different strengths of member countries and promote balanced development in the Mekong sub-region. The five countries are members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

Such welfare will not only benefit the Mekong Economic Cooperation Strategy (ACMECS) countries but also add value to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and its solidarity.

The Mekong Economic Cooperation Strategy will act as a mechanism to build upon existing regional cooperation programs and bilateral frameworks of international trade to transforming the border areas of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam into areas of economic growth, social progress, and welfare.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) act as a development partner of the Mekong Economic Cooperation Strategy (ACMECS) and guarantees that duplication is minimised and synergy is maximised.
