Noting that energy plays an essential role in the post-pandemic recovery, ASEAN sets its pathways towards a sustainable, secure, and prosperous future through the implementation of the ASEAN Plan of Action for Energy Cooperation (APAEC) Phase II: 2021 – 2025, which has been endorsed by the 38th ASEAN Ministers on Energy Meeting (AMEM) in 2020. The implementation of APAEC Phase II serves as the regional blueprint and pathway to accelerate the energy transition and strengthen energy resilience through more significant innovation, cooperation, and partnerships.
In July 2020, the ROK Government introduced Green New Deal as a national development strategy to support the country’s recovery from the pandemic crisis and lead the global action against structural changes. ROK’s Green New Deal aims to achieve net-zero emissions and accelerates the transition towards a low-carbon and green economy. To this end, the government plans to build eco-friendly energy infrastructures, promotes the use of low-carbon and decentralised energy.
In this regard, the ROK Mission to ASEAN plans to co-host the 3rd New Southern Policy Forum with ASEAN Centre for Energy on ASEAN-ROK Cooperation for Energy Transition towards Sustainable Recovery.
