Asia Cooperation Dialogue July 11, 2019

Asia Cooperation Dialogue

The Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) is the only mechanism for official dialogue and cooperation covering the whole of Asia. Inaugurated in 2002, it aims to promote exchanges in areas such as agriculture, energy and poverty reduction, and boost Asia-wide cooperation and development through dialogue.

ACD activities are conducted through its Summits, Foreign Ministers Meetings, prime movers in specific areas, and meetings of high-level study groups. To date, two ACD Summits and 14 Foreign Ministers Meetings have been convened.

Attaching great importance to the dialogue, China is an active participant in ACD activities and supports strengthening the ACD to better serve Asia-wide development and integration. To this end, it has hosted events such as the ACD Forum on Silk Road Cooperation, the ACD Forum on Belt and Road Cooperation and the Asia Business Conference.
