The Meeting’s agenda includes discussion on the direction of MLC cooperation to jointly address the current challenges, such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, food and energy security, and climate change. The Foreign Ministers will also exchange views on the new draft 5-year Plan of Action of MLC (2023 - 2027), identifying priority areas of cooperation to cope with sub-regional challenges.
