Description of the Subject - The East-West Economic Corridor (Myanmar-Thailand-Laos-Vietnam).

The East-West Economic Corridor (Myanmar-Thailand-Laos-Vietnam) was created in 1998 as an initiative of the Greater Mekong Subregion. Over the years, it has evolved from a transport corridor to an economic corridor (transport information networks, energy, products and people). All the countries in the corridor are members of the ASEAN. The ASEAN has a Free-Trade Area with China.

The 1,320-kilometer corridor connects the Andaman Sea (Myanmar) to the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea (Vietnam) by road.

The travel between Mawlamyirine Port (Myanmar) and Da Nang Port takes a few hours
