Foreign Affairs News Desk

United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and South Asia Watch on Trade, Economics and Environment (SAWTEE) are organizing a half-day policy dialogue to disseminate the findings of the ESCAP flagship report, the Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2022 on July 1, 2022 in Kathmandu.

Launched on April 12, 2022, Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific, is one of the longest, continuously running reports in the United Nations system, providing decision makers in the region with valuable information in forming development policy for decades.

The Survey 2022 highlights the role of macroeconomic and structural policies in tackling inequalities and recommends a three-pronged policy agenda aimed at shaping inclusive economic recovery and development in Asia and the Pacific.

The proposed policy dialogue could also serve as a venue to discuss major development challenges that Nepal is currently facing and available policy options to address them, SAWTEE believes.
