The year 2021 not only marks the 30th anniversary of China-ASEAN dialogue and relations, but also witnesses the steady progress of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). Once implemented, the RCEP is expected to significantly eliminate tariffs between its signatory nations, and further promote regional value chains, trade, and intellectual property. The RCEP will help form a more secure and diversified supply chain, while facilitating closer regional economic and social connections.
On June 17th, China Development Institute and KSI Strategic Institute for Asia Pacific jointly held a webinar, bring together public representatives, academics, and professionals in the hope of providing insights into the next steps for regional economic cooperation and the RCEP’s complementary role to the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
