ASEAN Plus Three Cooperation Work Plan 2023-2027

4 August 2022

The ASEAN Plus Three (APT) Cooperation Work Plan 2023-2027 serves as a principal guide to enhance APT cooperation over the next five years towards achieving the long-term goal of establishing an East Asia community with ASEAN as the driving force. Consistent with existing regional mechanisms, APT recognises ASEAN Centrality as the driving force in the evolving regional architecture. Building on the achievements of the previous APT Work Plan, this Work Plan will help ASEAN realise the goals of its Community Vision 2025 as well as its successor document. This Work Plan is also aimed to further strengthen the APT partnership in accordance with the principles of the ASEAN Charter and the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in Southeast Asia (TAC), as well as the ASEAN Outlook on the Indo-Pacific (AOIP).
