Asia’s landlocked developing countries face distinct development challenges and policy needs, amply highlighted by the Vienna Programme of Action for Landlocked Developing Countries, 2014-2024. The Vienna Programme of Action’s priorities concern fundamental transit policy issues, infrastructure development and maintenance, international trade and trade facilitation, regional integration and cooperation, structural economic transformation and means of implementation. The Outcome Document of the Euro-Asian Regional Midterm Review of the Vienna Programme of Action, which took place on 11-12 February 2019 at the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, showed that progress has been made towards implementing the priorities of the Programme. However, it also pointed to the remaining gaps, highlighting important shortcomings such as slow structural economic transformation towards higher value-added sectors.
