The meeting is among a series of important discussions being held this week in Hanoi between ASEAN and its partners. The ASEAN Plus One mechanism was set up with the aim of promoting economic cooperation in the region. Its agenda has been extended to politics, security and cultural integration over the past few years. The ASEAN Plus One meeting has confirmed five major cooperation fields, which focus on agriculture, communication, exploration of the labor force, bilateral investment and the Mekong Basin development.
