The 4th ASEAN Economic Integration Forum 2019

Monday, December 9, 2019 to Tuesday, December 10, 2019

BANGKOK, THAILAND

The collaborator of WTO Chairs Programme - UNESCAP is organizing the 4th ASEAN Economic Integration Forum 2019.
 
BACKGROUND
Throughout the last 50 years, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has transformed from a loosely constructed regional organization to one of the major players in the world encompassing almost all countries in Southeast Asia. Besides its growing political integration, ASEAN created the world’s sixth-largest market and works with the third-largest labor force. If by 2030 it were a single economy, ASEAN would be ranked 4th place amongst all world’s economic powers. While its potential for future growth and rising prosperity seems unlimited, to convert them into reality, more efforts need to be undertaken to ensure inclusive and sustainable development of the region as a whole. In this regard, the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015 and adoption of ASEAN Vision 2025 Forging Ahead Together moved the bloc toward fostering closer economic, political, social, and cultural cooperation. It will be necessary, however, to take further actions to deliver equitable development across the ASEAN community and in line with Sustainable Development Goals.
