Abstract

The study describes the creation four clusters for organic vegetables along the East West Economic Corridor EWEC of the Greater Mekong Subregion GMS. These clusters have three goals: a to foster the conversion of conventional agricultural farming to organic production, and thereby enable the generation of high value-added activities; b to promote linkages among micro and small scale producers, and thereby improve their competitive position within the value chain; and c to spur the development of agricultural activities affecting the majority of the EWEC population either directly or indirectly, and thereby enable the transformation of the EWEC transport and logistics corridor into a full-fledged economic corridor.
