Regional Development

Regional development planning is undertaken by governments to improve the well-being of people in areas where there is concern about present and future living conditions. It is an essential activity to ensure fair distribution of opportunity to the people, and to make the most appropriate use of a country’s potential.

KEI has a team of planners and economists, supported by advanced capabilities in use of remote sensing and GIS tools, that have prepared a number of masterplans and land use plans. A core feature of any plan is invariably investment in transport infrastructure to attract investment to the regions, and to improve access to markets.

In the Philippines, KEI carried out a masterplan study for regional growth centers, covering provincial centers of Metro Iloilo, Metro Bacolod, Metro Cagayan de Oro, which focussed on road network development needs.

In Vietnam, KEI has been involved in the Rural Infrastructure Development and Living Standard Improvement Project from 1998 until the present. This programme assists provincial governments in planning, identification, and implementation of small-scale projects for rural electrification, irrigation, water supply, and road and bridge improvement. Following the success of phase 1, successive phases have continued to build on the concept and expand the number of target provinces.
