President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo called for an immediate implementation of an ASEAN travel corridor on Monday ahead of the bloc’s summits, in order to speed up economic recovery as confidence grows in COVID-19 outbreak control. The President is set to meet leaders from eight other ASEAN nations and their dialogue partners for the 38th and 39th ASEAN summits virtually this week, hosted by Brunei Darussalam as this year’s chair of the regional organization. The three-day summits will begin Tuesday, and leaders are expected to discuss the implementation of the ASEAN Travel Corridor Arrangement Framework after launching a declaration about it in November last year.
