The RETA will proactively identify new subregional priorities and programs and pursue new initiatives of regional cooperation involving North and Northeast Asia covering the People's Republic of China (PRC), Mongolia, Republic of Korea (ROK), Japan and Russia. It will focus in areas of (i) transportation; (ii) energy security; (iii) environmental cooperation (e.g., dust and sandstorm mitigation and early warning and reduction of transboundary pollution from power stations); (iv) cooperation in financial sector and other service sectors; (v) customs cooperation; (vi) trade facilitation; and (vii) logistics industry development. Emphasis will also be on greater private sector involvement in subregional cooperation to complement the already well-developed government to government links. Likewise, the RETA will deliberate on how to engage non-traditional countries in regional cooperation activities.
