The vision of the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity 2025 is to achieve a seamless and comprehensive, connected and integrated ASEAN that will promote competitiveness, inclusiveness, and a greater sense of community. The plan focuses on five strategic areas namely: sustainable infrastructure, digital innovation, seamless logistics, regulatory excellence and people mobility.
ASEAN has identified 19 infrastructure projects across the region in an Initial Pipeline of rolling projects that covers transport, energy, and information and communication technology. These projects will contribute to improving the movement of people, services, goods and innovations among the ASEAN Member States.
At the inaugural ASEAN-UK Economic Dialogue in August, it was highlighted that the Master Plan provides a significant platform for UK-ASEAN cooperation. Digital innovation and seamless logistics were among the areas identified to work together on to deliver resilient and complex infrastructure projects that boost connectivity in the region.
