The COVID-19 Recovery Guidelines for Resilient and Sustainable International Road Freight Transport Connectivity in ASEAN (“Guidelines”) is developed by the ASEAN Transport Facilitation Working Group (TFWG) with joint assistance from the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the International Transport Forum (ITF), following the outcomes of the ESCAP-ASEAN-ITF joint webinar on “Preserving Transport Connectivity and Building Freight Transport Resilience in ASEAN” in July 2020. The Guidelines were designed to support ASEAN Member States in establishing their regional and national transport connectivity recovery plans with a focus on resilience and sustainability, as well as developing regional COVID-19 recovery guidelines on cross-border road freight transport. The Guidelines also contribute to the implementation of initiatives under the ASEAN Comprehensive Recovery Framework adopted at the 37th ASEAN Summit.
