The RSIS Centre for Multilateralism Studies held a workshop on â€œGovernance of East Asian Regional Economic Architecturesâ€ on 10 September 2013. East Asian states are increasingly fostering economic cooperation in several areas such as trade, finance and investment. However, efforts to construct or improve regional economic governance are facing challengesâ€”both from economic and political factors. This workshop aimed to: (i) identify economic and political challenges to East Asian economic governance, and (ii) suggest policy recommendations on the next steps to strengthen regional economic governance. Experts from around the region were invited to share their insights on how to address such challenges to enhance regional economic governance in the future. The commentaries in this policy report emerge from the presentations and discussions at the workshop and are divided into two groups.
