Southeast Asia Ministerial Forum 2022

First Ministerial Discussion: OECD – Southeast Asia Partnerships for Strengthening Supply Chain Resilience

Oct 17, 2022 | 2:45 PM - 4:15 PM

Conference room


Following disruptions over the past two years, supply chain resilience has emerged as a policy priority for governments and business alike. ASEAN and OECD ministers and high-level representatives will be invited to share perspectives on challenges and responses to improve supply chain resilience in the near term, focusing on the role of openness to trade and investment, free trade agreements, the global tax agenda, and policies that improve the business climate for investment, including SME policies. • How can policy-makers ensure markets remain open and facilitate the movement of goods in times of supply chain disruptions – namely between the OECD and ASEAN regions? • How can policy-makers attract high quality investment and facilitate investment climate dialogue with the private sector? • Considering that SMEs form the back-bone of Southeast Asian economies, how can policy-makers best support SMEs to achieve greater resilience and integration into global supply chains?
