ERIA is an international organization established by a formal agreement among 16 Heads of Government at the Third East Asia Summit in Singapore on 21 November 2007. It works closely with both the ASEAN Secretariat and 16 research institutes in EAS countries to provide intellectual and analytical research and policy recommendations. These research and policy recommendations are expected to help in the deliberation of the leaders and ministers during their meetings and the East Asia and ASEAN Summits. ERIA conducts research under three pillars, namely “Deepening Economic Integration”, “Narrowing Development Gaps”, and “Sustainable Development”.
