Storyline


Economic ministers from 10 ASEAN Member States, and China, Japan and South Korea on Tuesday reaffirmed their strong commitment to upholding the multilateral trading system and full support to the regional economic integration in Bangkok at the 22nd ASEAN Economic Ministers (AEM) Plus Three Consultations.

In a joint media statement, they noted the global outlook in economic and trade performance and the recent moderation of growth, underscoring the importance of multilateralism and regionalism in contributing to global and regional peace, stability and prosperity.

Data showed that the foreign direct investment (FDI) from China, Japan and South Korea to the ASEAN region last year was as much as 37.9 billion U.S. dollars, accounting for 24.5 percent of the region's total FDI, up by 9.9 percent year on year.

While trade continued to expand between ASEAN and the Three Consultations, the ministers cautioned against rising trade tensions and its impact on growth, the statement said.

They expressed concerns over the rising tide of protectionism and anti-globalization sentiments that continue to plague the global economy and put the multilateral trading system at risk.

They thus reaffirmed their strong commitment to upholding an open, inclusive, transparent, non-discriminatory and rules-based multilateral trading system.

They also reaffirmed their full support for enhanced regional economic integration, welcoming the progress in the negotiations for the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP).

Full support was reiterated towards the conclusion of the RCEP negotiations in 2019 as mandated by the RCEP leaders, to create a modern, comprehensive, high quality and mutually beneficial agreement.

Jurin Laksanawisit, deputy prime minister and minister of commerce of Thailand, who co-chaired the 22nd ASEAN Plus Three Consultations, said after the meeting that ASEAN Plus Three Consultations is an important part that drives regional economy to move forward.

"Ministers from the ASEAN countries and China, Japan and South Korea have agreed on uncertainty in the global economy. We're unanimous in joining hands to promote the negotiations for the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and try to bring the talks scheduled in Bangkok this November to an end. The agreement is conducive to promoting the circulation of commodities and boosting investment among member states. It will adopt the uniform trading rules and make full efforts to uphold free trade. It will effectively stimulate the development of small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as small and micro enterprises. It will form a very important scheme for the regional economic growth," he said.

The RCEP is a proposed free trade agreement between the 10 ASEAN (the Association of Southeast Asian Nations) members and six Asia-Pacific countries with which ASEAN has free trade agreements -- Australia, China, India, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand.
