4th Mekong River Commission Summit

5 April 2023 | Lao PDR

The Mekong River Commission (MRC) Summit is convened every four years, bringing together political leaders to address the prevailing challenges and opportunities facing the Mekong Basin. It is an opportunity for the Heads of Governments of the four MRC Member Countries to revisit the commitments made four years earlier and agree on strategies for the future and beyond.

Three summits have been held to date – the first in 2010, hosted by the Kingdom of Thailand in Hua Hin, and the second in 2014, hosted by the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam in Ho Chi Minh City and the third in 2018, hosted by the Kingdom of Cambodia in Siem Reap. Ministerial representatives from MRC Dialogue Partners, China and Myanmar, participated in the three Summits.

The fourth Summit, which focuses on the theme ‘Innovation and Cooperation for a Water Secure and Sustainable Mekong’, will be hosted by the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and held on 5 April 2023 following a preparatory Ministerial Meeting on 4 April and an International Conference of Stakeholders on 2-3 April 2023. The venue for all events is Vientiane Capital, Lao PDR.

Further details on AWP’s engagement at the Summit will be available soon.
