This prologue stresses the significant impact of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) development project within East and Southeast Asia and the rest of the world. At the same time it also briefly looks into news media coverage in Asia, noting that, especially the coverage on the major natural disasters that occurred in the region in 2008. The chapter remarks that while the impact of the GMS is comparatively less evident and less “newsworthy,” the GMS is worthy of understanding for those living within the GMS as well as those living outside of it—beyond invocations of “global citizenship,” the GMS is an integral part of the broader world in which processes of “globalization” and “regionalization” are occurring.

Keywords:   natural disasters, Greater Mekong Subregion, GMS development, East Asia, Southeast Asia, globalization, regionalization
