Economic corridors are integrated networks of infrastructure within a geographical area designed to stimulate economic development.Corridors may be developed within a country or between countries. Corridors exist in Asia, Africa, and other areas.
Economic corridors often feature integrated infrastructure, such as highways, railroads and ports, and may link cities or countries. Corridors may be created to link manufacturing hubs, areas with high supply and demand, and manufacturers of value-added goods.When implemented, economic corridors are often one of a package of different measures including infrastructure development, visa and transport agreements, and standardisation. Consideration of social needs, such as housing, is often considered.
