The Southeast Asia region faces both opportunities and challenges in relation to economic growth. While nations overall have made some progress at the macro level, there are rising wealth and social disparities, both within and among countries. The population shift from rural to urban equates to a growing need to create more urban jobs and it is also critical to ensure that rural communities are not left behind.

Kenan Institute Asia plays an important role in supporting economic growth, alleviating poverty, creating employment opportunities, increasing economic cooperation, supporting business enablers, and the continued integration of the Southeast Asia Economic Community. We partner with policy makers and business leaders to build a strong and sustainable environment to enhance economic growth. Our programming and advisory expertise supports private sector development, from capacity building for micro entrepreneurship and SMEs to policy support for governments and regional political bodies.
