Australia-Mekong Partnership(4)

 

Australia and the countries of the Mekong sub-region share a vision for an open, inclusive, secure and prosperous region. Australia is longstanding partner and committed neighbour, with a robust economic relationship with the region and deep government and people connections.

The recovery of the Mekong sub-region from the economic and health challenges of COVID-19 is critical to a shared vision of stability and prosperity. To support these efforts, in November 2020 Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the $232 million Mekong‑Australia Partnership (MAP) – building on long-standing bilateral programs with Mekong states – to enhance Australia’s engagement with the sub-region.

MAP forms part of Australia’s approximately $500 million landmark package of new economic, development and security measures to support Southeast Asia’s COVID-19 recovery.

As a part of cooperation between the Australian Embassy in Phnom Penh and Auscham Cambodia, David Bloch, First Secretary provideed an outline of the recent developments in the Australia Government’s engagement with Cambodia and the Mekong, including the Mekong-Australia Partnership, Partnerships for Infrastructure and Australia’s bilateral economic development program in Cambodia.
