A shared strategy with people as the centerpiece of regional development efforts

Vision 2036 is a shared strategy for promoting growth through greater regional economic integration and innovation, and for conserving and investing in IMT-GT’s natural capital for the well-being of the present and future generations. It is also a long-term strategy for empowering its people to contribute to and benefit from the socioeconomic development of the subregion. It looks ahead at what the subregion wants to be in the year 2036 and identifies key issues that it needs to tackle to get there. Building on its strengths, the vision will help IMT-GT to unlock its full potential and to improve the well-being of its citizens. It will guide the subregion in its endeavour to exploit its underlying economic complementaries and comparative advantages, and maximise the benefits stemming from its geographical proximity and close historical, cultural and linguistic ties.
