The COVID-19 Development Response Plan for ASEAN and Southeast Asia has been extended through 2022-23.

In 2022-23 we will deepen our engagement in Southeast Asia by committing an additional $470 million in Official Development Assistance (ODA) over the forward estimates and establish an Office of Southeast Asia to coordinate our engagement with this dynamic region.
