Pandemic Best Policy Strategies: Balancing Health and Economy
First regional conference on sharing pandemic best practices – virtual
The COVID-19 pandemic for the past two years has transformed health systems and battled economies across the globe. Much COVID-19-focused research and development innovation, alongside the persevering efforts of political leaders to safeguard and sustain economic progress, has been undertaken. Within the diverse community of ERIA Member States alone, a variety of measures have been tackled to survive through attempts to balance each nation’s health and economy. A first of its kind, this regional conference answers requests heard through regional meetings for such a gathering, and offers EMSs the opportunity to share with neighbors what they have learned to be most effective for them, in order to more smoothly exit this pandemic as well as better prepare for upcoming ones.
Experts have thus been invited to present their government’s best policy strategy/ies that have had the greatest impact on balancing economy and health under the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s ASEAN chair, Cambodia, will open, introducing the hard-hit populous and developing archipelagos of Indonesia and the Philippines, the peninsular Thailand, the ASEAN neighbor India with its population of over one billion, and the technologically advanced Japan in East Asia. Articles, Op-Eds, policy papers, and academic publications (commentaries) are expected to arise from the presentations.
