ASEAN Connectivity Symposium
The ASEAN Connectivity Symposium is a flagship annual event on ASEAN Connectivity that brings together representatives from ASEAN Member States, ASEAN sectoral bodies and national agencies, ASEAN Dialogue Partners, multilateral development banks, international organisations, private sector, academia and media, to identify the gaps in the implementation of the Master Plan and recommend actions that ASEAN could pursue to address them. Building on the momentum of the first two ASEAN Connectivity Symposiums which had effectively socialized and reached out to relevant stakeholders, the third ASEAN Connectivity Symposium will be themed "Realising ASEAN Connectivity for ASEAN Community Building". This Symposium is planned to be held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on 7-8 September 2012 and will have a focus on fostering regional partnership in connectivity for an equitable development and for future shared prosperity within ASEAN.
The Symposium is expected to produce a set of recommendations, which can be annexed to the report of the ACCC to the ASEAN Coordinating Council.
