World Economic Forum on ASEAN in Hanoi, Vietnam

While ASEAN’s GDP has more than doubled over the past decade, inequality remains high, undermining poverty alleviation, threatening social cohesion and slowing economic growth.
What are the levers that can build more equal societies and contribute to sustainable progress?

Dimensions to be addressed:
