East-West Economic Corridor (EWEC)Strategy and Action Plan


Author Info

  • Lord, Montague


The aim of this study is to revise and update the strategy and action plan for the EWEC as a means of consolidating planning and programming activities by government authorities and development partners. It differs from the 2001 strategy and action plan in three ways. First, it shifts the vision of the corridor to the socio-economic development of the subregion with a poverty-based focus, linked closely to the other corridors and transport routes at the interchange, border and gateway nodes, as well as secondary and feeder roads offering access to markets for rural communities. Second, it focuses the action plan on a relatively few high-profile initiatives that have direct links to key strategic areas in private sector, social, environmental and multi-model transport development. Finally, it broadens the sector coverage to those of private sector, social and environmental development, while maintaining trade and investment, agriculture and agro-industry, tourism and infrastructure as core development areas.
