The Lower Mekong Initiative (LMI) and broader Friends of the Lower Mekong (FLM) donor coordination network offer unique approaches to transboundary and sub-regional engagement within ASEAN, participants agreed during the Tenth LMI and FLM Regional Working Group (RWG) Meeting November 16-17 in Vientiane, Lao PDR.  Bringing together interagency delegations from Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, the United States, and Viet Nam, and as well as donors and other partners, the meeting built on progress made by Secretary Tillerson and regional Foreign Ministers at the August 6 LMI Ministerial Meeting in Manila and explored how to streamline LMI and ensure LMI remains flexible, responsive, and complementary to other initiatives.
