Two corridors, BIMP EAGA's top priority

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (27 October) -- Senior officials of the BIMP EAGA bared yesterday the two economic corridors as top priorities of the said regional cluster in the next few years.

The BIMP EAGA Senior Officials Meeting were attended by Merly Cruz of the Philippines, Firman Tamboem of Indonesia, and Madam Norani Ibrahim of Malaysia.

The officials cited the growth corridors of the Heart of Borneo as well as the Sulu Sulawedi Marine Economic Region Corridors as the focus areas for the potential BIMP EAGA projects in the coming years.

The said corridors would cover Brunei, West Kalimantan, Sarawak, and Sabah for the West Borneo and North Sulawesi, Sabah, Palawan, and Mindanao for the Greater Sulu Sulawesi Corridor.

Some of the major initiatives cited for these growth areas are transport connectivity such as the expansion of air linkages, interstate mobility of buses, and promotion of sea transport and linkages.

The regional cluster also aims to improve trade facilitation by streamlining the CIQS procedures and border crossing formalities.

The officials would then follow through these initiatives by introducing this economic corridor concept to the different BIMP EAGA government and push for a conduct of a pre-investment study of these corridors. (PIA XI) [top]
