ASEAN Economic Ministers’ Meeting Held and new ASEAN-Japan Priority for Innovative and Sustainable Growth was welcomed
ASEAN Economic Ministers' Meeting was held for the last two weeks. At ASEAN Economic Ministers’(AEM)-METI Consultations held on 15th September, there was a series of active discussions on economic and industrial cooperation between ASEAN and Japan, including DISG.
Particularly worth highlighting is the "ASEAN-Japan Priority for Innovative and Sustainable Growth", which Japan proposed as a priority for both ASEAN and Japan to address for post COVID-19 economic growth.
The priory contains the following four matters:
- Steady implement the ASEAN-Japan Economic Resilience Action Plan.
- Identify priority fields for focusing on innovation & sustainability in 3 areas; "Industry", "Urban areas" and "Rural areas".
- Review and upgrade the ASEAN-Japan Economic Resilience Action Plan based on the above-mentioned three priority areas.
- Further promote public-private partnerships between ASEAN and Japan based on the Dialogue for Innovative and Sustainable Growth (DISG), which was launched in last year’s meeting.
The priority was welcomed by the ASEAN side, and DISG will continue to develop its activities based on the discussion in this AEM-METI consultation to meet further expectations.
