In this high-level session, participants celebrated 20 years of CAREC as a frontline cooperation platform for the region and reflected on how digital transformation and technologies can help advance the regional cooperation agenda and strengthen CAREC programs and activities going forward.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant adverse impact on the global economy. Countries in the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) region have not been spared by disruptions in global and regional links affecting their supply chains, tourism, remittances, and other economic activities. Digitalization, innovation, and technology will play a significant role in the revival and diversification of economies in the post-pandemic period.

The event was held on the sidelines of the 54th Annual Meeting of the ADB Board of Governors.
