  • (Re)initiate the dialogue on economic cooperation
  • Increase stakeholder constituency through multi-level interactions and engagements with decision makers, policy influencers and other key stakeholders
  • Address knowledge gaps and build capacities of key stakeholders
  • Facilitation of a joint business chamber for promoting and creating a positive ecosystem for bilateral trade
  • Promote business collaborations between product specific associations and chambers
