ASEC to Host Back-to-Back Events Tackling Development Gaps in ASEAN

A book titled “Narrowing the Development Gap in ASEAN: Drivers and Policy Options” will be launched on 17 May 2013 at the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta. A collaboration between ASEAN and AusAID, the book defines and describes the existing gap in ASEAN particularly within and between its newer member states, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Viet Nam (or CLMV) and the so-called ASEAN-6.

As part of the regular Narrowing the Development Gap (NDG) Lecture Series, public lecture sessions will also be held on 16 May and 17 May in cooperation with Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and AusAID, respectively.

NDG Lecture Series, No. 3: Defining the Gap, Zooming in on the Health Sector – Friday, 17 May, 1pm
The Series explores salient issues in narrowing various forms of development gaps in ASEAN. Convening a set of expert practitioners, academics, and decision-makers, the series aims to create a venue to share both theoretical and evidence-based observations, policy suggestions and practical solutions to addressing NDG issues.
