Workshop on Training on Investment Policy Making in the CLMV

OECD-ASEAN Training on investment Policy Making in the CLMV to Support the Initiative for ASEAN Integration


The Initiative for ASEAN Integration (IAI), launched in 2000, helps ASEAN’s newer Member States implement ASEAN commitments and agreements. Through special assistance to Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Viet Nam (CLMV countries), it aims to further regional integration in order to narrow the development gap within ASEAN. IAI has so far seen the adoption of two work plans. Work Plan I, from 2002 to 2008, comprised 232 projects in four areas. Work Plan II began in 2009, and includes 182 actions aligned with the three ASEAN Community Blueprints 2015. However, while over 280 projects worth over US$40 million have been undertaken, the implementation rate for actions is less than 45%. One key challenge for Work Plan III therefore is to undertake a more strategic and focused effort in the development and implementation of the actions. IAI Work Plan III has been developed in close collaboration with CLMV countries, other ASEAN Member States and stakeholders, and is aligned with the ASEAN Community Vision 2025 and the various sectoral work plans. To improve focus and lift implementation, five strategic areas have since been identified
