MIMA Visiting Fellow Talk Series 2021 Global Trade, Connectivity Building, and Regional Integration after COVID-19: Opportunities and Challenges for ASEAN States
The visiting fellow talk series aims to deepen the participants’ knowledge and understandings of the post-COVID-19 international trade, particularly focusing on the Southeast Asian region. The talk provides in-depth perspectives on the opportunities and challenges brought on by regional multilateral mechanisms on facilitating economic recovery of the ASEAN states after the pandemic. The ASEAN Comprehensive Recovery Framework (ACRF) and its implementation plan as well as free trade agreements (FTAs) such as the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) and the five FTAs signed with ASEAN+6 Dialogue Partners will be discussed in this session. Furthermore, this talk touches upon the implications of the pandemic for connectivity building among ASEAN states, which is integral to attain the ASEAN Community Vision 2025 and the three Community Blueprints 2025, as stated in the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity 2025 (MPAC 2025). In 2015, the ASEAN Community comprising three pillars – the ASEAN Political-Security Community (APSC), ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), and ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community (ASCC) was formally established in order to achieve a more integrated, cohesive, and peaceful ASEAN region.
