Sustainable and Quality Investment: New Momentum for OECD Southeast Asia Partnership

The OECD and Southeast Asia

For over 25 years, the OECD and Southeast Asia have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship, fostering policy dialogue and disseminating good practices and mutual learning in areas such as investment, education, inclusiveness, sustainable infrastructures, good governance, access to markets, and fiscal policy. The OECD Southeast Asia Regional Programme (SEARP), launched in 2014, has been instrumental in strengthening OECD co-operation with this dynamic region.

Today, Indonesia has commenced the accession process to become a Member of the Organisation and the Thailand Country Programme was established in 2018. All ten ASEAN countries (Brunei DarussalamCambodiaIndonesiaLao PDRMalaysiaMyanmarthe PhilippinesSingaporeThailand and Viet Nam) participate in OECD committees, working groups, peer reviews and studies. The region contributes to data collection and international benchmarking exercises such as the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and Investment Policy Reviews and countries adhere a range of international standards and norms developed by the OECD
