Inasmuch as the transportation infrastructure for the integration process is being planned and programmed on a South American scale, the Andean Community countries are giving priority to the actions and projects provided for in the framework of the South American Regional Infrastructure Integration Initiative (IIRSA). At the same time, efforts are being made to reactivate the Andean Committee on Road Infrastructure (CAIV).

The CAIV is a forum for road infrastructure authorities from the Andean Community Member Countries that was established by Decision 271 in October 1990, for the purpose of coordinating the execution of programs, projects and actions having to do with the Andean Road System. Today, the countries are coordinating the committee's reactivation.

The Andean Hub, consisting of the principal coordination nodes (major highway systems, ports, airports and border crossings) of Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela, is one of the hubs of the South American Regional Infrastructure Integration Initiative (IIRSA).
