    The World Economic Forum on East Asia, the world’s economically fastest-growing region, will be held in Indonesia’s capital Jakarta from April 19 to 21.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The three-day event will be “an ideal platform” for senior decision-makers to discuss means to improve regional cooperation, according to its website.

    This will include finding solutions to pressing challenges, exploring opportunities and disruptions to economic growth, as well as examining current progress and geopolitical tensions that could undermine it.

    The participants will also discuss the impact of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ new Economic Community, aimed to unite its 10 member states into a common market.

    Representatives of major banks and organizations, as well as dozens of ministers and other senior officials from around the world are set to attend the forum.
