ASEAN should step up connectivity efforts, experts say

Participants from the public and private sector discuss ways to enhance regional connectivity on Tuesday in Kuala Lumpur.

KUALA LUMPUR -- Southeast Asian policymakers should accelerate integration projects in the pipeline, such as infrastructure development and digital innovation, to meet a 2025 target, experts argued at a roundtable Tuesday.

Meeting to discuss the private sector's role in the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity 2025, participants agreed that with barriers to integration substantially eliminated, the next step is to kick off projects already outlined by the 10 member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
