Amidst the ongoing challenges, she saw the following opportunities to foster economic development in East Asia, including the further facilitation of the full-fledged and high-quality implementation of the RCEP, maintaining the regional supply chain stability to overcome disruptions, strengthening policy communication and coordination to maintain financial stability in East Asia, and to restore and expand people-to-people and cultural exchanges in the post-pandemic era and to prevent nationalism and populism overspreading. 

At the Forum, SG OU was also interviewed by AECF Youth Committee. In her interview, she introduced the mandate and function of the TCS and delivered her message to the young generation. She underscored that the young generation in this region is the key to Lasting Peace, Common Prosperity and Shared Culture.
