Abstract

The present study maps the organic vegetables value chain in the East West Economic Corridor (EWEC) of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS). It covers horizontal and vertical linkages, information and support services, price differentials, and packaging, branding and certification processes in an effort to identify strengths and challenges for an action plan in the value chain. In so doing, it supports the transformation of the EWEC from a transport and logistics corridor into a full-fledged economic corridor. After more than a decade in the making, the EWEC now offers time and cost-efficient transport linkages between major commercial centers and gateways to markets within and outside the corridor. By broadening the scope of the EWEC into value chains whose activities extend across districts, provinces, sub-regions and global markets, the economic corridor will enable households and enterprises of all sizes to better link their actions with value-adding downstream activities.
