ERIA Hosts Meeting between ERIA, OECD, and Their Parliamentary Leagues

The Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) hosted a meeting between the President of ERIA, the Secretary-General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), as well as Parliamentary Leagues for ERIA and OECD on 13 April 2018 in Tokyo.

Secretary-General of Liberal Democratic Party of Japan and Chairman of both Parliamentary Leagues for ERIA and OECD, H.E. Mr Toshihiro Nikai, and Secretary-General of OECD, Mr Angel Gurria, began by celebrating the 10th anniversary of ERIA this year as ‘parents’ of ERIA. Mr Gurria expressed his appreciation for the fact that OECD’s access in the ASEAN region and its connection to organisations in this region have highly improved due to ERIA’s support and the constant expansion of the collaborative fields between ERIA and OECD.

The executives of Parliamentary Leagues for ERIA and OECD expressed their appreciation on OECD’s continuous support for Fukushima after the disaster that happened in 2011. Moreover, they expressed their determination to promote policies by strengthening the cooperation with ERIA and OECD in various fields such as environment, agriculture, and regional disparity.

Finally, Prof Nishimura mentioned that ERIA has cooperated with OECD in various fields such as SME Policy Index, global value chain analysis, regulatory reform in ASEAN, public-private partnership of infrastructure development, and recently expanded to sophistication of agricultural value chain and disaster prevention. He highlighted the necessity of further cooperation with OECD and support from both Parliamentary Leagues for the development of the ASEAN and the East Asia region.
