ERIA – UNESCAP Joint Policy Dialogue: Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2019: Ambitions beyond growth

ERIA – UNESCAP Joint Policy Dialogue: 
Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2019: Ambitions beyond growth

Programme

The relatively stable economic performance of Asia and the Pacific conceals increasing downside risks to regional progress in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In an era of uncertainty, bold and wise policies are needed to make growth inclusive and sustainable, i.e., 'putting people and planet first.'

A comprehensive assessment of the investment needed to reach the Sustainable Development Goals in the region by 2030 estimates an additional $1.5 trillion per year to end poverty and hunger, provide basic health care, a quality education, enabling infrastructure and clean energy for all, and for climate action and living in harmony with nature. These 'ambitions beyond growth' are largely affordable for most countries in the region, given available public and private resources. Strong development partnerships and regional cooperation are essential to ensure that all countries complete this important journey.

On 20 June 2019, The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) and the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) are delighted to invite you to a policy dialogue on The Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2019. The speaker will be UNESCAP's Economic Affairs Officer, Mr Zheng Jian.

The event aims to discuss and freely exchange views on policy issues raised in 'The Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2019'.

Speaker: Mr Zheng Jian, Economic Affairs Officer, UNESCAP
Moderator & Discussant: Dr Fauziah Zen, Senior Economist, ERIA
