(The 17th ASEAN Summit in Hanoi in October 2010 adopted the ASEAN Master Plan on Connectivity developed by a High Level Task Force. The Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity covers Physical, Institutional and People Connectivity. Greater and closer connectivity will enhance economic community building and create new business and investment opportunities for economic community building. The Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity also lays the foundation for closer connectivity with other regions and countries such as Japan, China, South Asia and the USA. One of the key challenges with implementing the Connectivity Master Plan is to obtain sufficient financing.

What are the national and regional level challenges in implementing the Master Plan?)
