This plan is in line with the Republic of Korea (RoK)'s "New Southern Policy". It also matches KOICA's vision for the implementation of its ODA programmes for the countries, which include providing support for education, rural and urban development, information and communications technologies, and transportation.

"KOICA will contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in ASEAN countries by increasing the scale of ODA in ASEAN countries by 20 percent annually and advancing the integration, effectiveness, and efficiency of ODA through the collaboration with internal and external partners," the agency said in its vision statement.
