The Expert Group Meeting aims to provide regional perspectives and in-depth country experiences in the implementation of the Vienna Programme of Action and in building their capacity to make appropriate policy responses that address their special sustainable development needs and policy challenges in a more coherent manner. The meetings also help strengthen professional networks of development experts in the Asia-Pacific region, in particular for the landlocked developing countries. It also seeks to review the draft chapters of the Asia-Pacific Countries with Special Needs Development Report 2017, which is a new annual ESCAP flagship publication on the development challenges of the region’s least developed countries (LDCs), landlocked developing countries (LLDCs) and small island developing States (SIDS). The 2017 issue of the CSN Development Report discusses the importance of investing in infrastructure development and maintenance in sustaining inclusive growth and sustainable development outcomes. Experts on development economics, infrastructure development and investment, and financing for development issues from leading national think-tanks, academic institutions and other stakeholders in Asia-Pacific are expected to attend the meeting.
