Further developing and deepening regional economic cooperation and integration (RECI) in the Asia-Pacific region offers solutions to emerging challenges, such as mitigating protectionist tendencies, reducing rising inequalities, and addressing environmental degradation. Through enhancing regional connectivity for energy, transport, and information and communications technology (ICT), and promoting regional cooperation in trade, financing and shared vulnerabilities, RECI offers enormous potential in generating trade, economic growth and employment, improving social outcomes and managing environmental risks. This presents the possibility to develop RECI as a critical enabler of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in Asia and the Pacific.
