The size and diversity of Southeast Asia is what makes ASEAN resilient and exciting. To maximise ASEAN’s potential, the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity (MPAC) 2025 promotes people mobility in the region by supporting ease of travel throughout ASEAN, reducing the gaps between vocational skills demand and supply, and increasing intra-ASEAN university students mobility.
To establish ASEAN as a single travel destination, ASEAN needs to address the lack of information on travel options and simplify the visa application process. The MPAC 2025 supports these efforts by enhancing the existing ASEAN tourism digital platforms and facilitating visa processes through the introduction of an electronic visa.
Greater mobility creates more opportunities. To bring ASEAN’s talents closer to their opportunities, the MPAC 2025 seeks to establish high-quality vocational training programmes and qualification frameworks, as well as develop a student mobility database, regional internship programmes and alumni networks.
