Cooperation in the energy sector is guided by the ASEAN Plan of Action for Energy Cooperation (APAEC), a series of five-year implementation plans for energy sector cooperation. ASEAN Member States cooperate to ‘enhance energy connectivity and market integration in ASEAN to achieve energy security, accessibility, affordability and sustainability for all’. AMEM+3 meetings provide a cooperation platform with dialogue partners to strengthen cooperation among ASEAN+3 countries.
