Abstract

Extract:
The- Mekong is international as well as transnational in character: it forms a political boundary between Thailand and Laos and a natural economic territory (NET) which transcends political boundaries. In this respect, the recent opening of the Australian-funded Friendship Bridge not only provides a much-sought physical link between Thailand and Laos but also a symbolic statement of the crossing of the Mekong-as-political-boundary by the integrative force of the Mekong-as-a-NET.
