Connecting Knowledge, Creating Possibilities

AMRO, with the support of its member authorities and partners, initiated the ASEAN+3 Finance Think-tank Network (AFTN), a network of leading think tanks and eminent research institutes from the ASEAN+3 region.

Established on September 29, 2023, the AFTN is an initiative under AMRO’s Strategic Direction 2030. It aims to serve as a platform for regional cooperation and dialogue and an intellectual resource to contribute to the macroeconomic and financial resilience and stability in ASEAN+3.

Under the AFTN, AMRO and the other 20 members pledge to strengthen cooperation and collaboration in areas of common interest through joint research, dialogues, knowledge exchange and mobilization of regional research resources. Additionally, the AFTN seeks to provide in-depth analyses and develop policy proposals.
