ERIA's Research Institutes Network Online Workshop Series Discuss Growth Strategy for Post COVID-19

Jakarta/Bangkok, 25 February 2022: The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and East Asia still face challenges in rebooting economic growth while controlling the spread of COVID-19. In addition, countries in these regions have to continuously cope with policy issues, such as deepening of regional integration, energy transition, circular economy, supply chain, and innovation of new technologies. The 2021 RIN Online Workshop Series 'Growth Strategy for Post COVID-19' focused on these issues.

To expand the current knowledge and stimulate interactive discussions among researchers in The Research Institutes Network (RIN) member institutes and the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA), 12 speakers including young researchers from 7 institutes and ERIA shared their findings and views from their current researches at the workshops.


The Workshop proceedings and the extended abstract of each presentation can be downloaded on the RIN website.
