It is an utmost pleasure to welcome you to International Teleconference on Technology and Policy for Supporting Implementation of COVID-19 Recovery Plan in Southeast Asia (ITTP-COVID19).

ITTP-COVID19 activities consist of conference, innovation competition and project proposal, which will be conducted virtually from 6th – 8th August 2021. It is organized by a group of stakeholders with the same objective of ensuring the success of COVID-19 recovery efforts, especially in the Southeast Asian region.

ITTP-COVID19 will provide a platform for academicians, governments, industry players, and non-governmental organizations to discuss research findings, innovations, proposals, experiences and implementation progress of COVID-19 recovery plan in Southeast Asia.

Ever since the start of COVID-19 outbreak in late 2019, numerous difficulties and challenges faced by countries around the world, including Southeast Asia region. It is believed that COVID-19 recovery and survival could not be pursued and contained within national boundaries due to Southeast Asian countries' interconnectedness. This has led to a group of experts with different background taking action by proposing activities involving Southeast Asian countries, which is now called, the ITTP-COVID19.

Thus, we strongly believe that ITTP-COVID19 is the best platform to address, discuss the issues and findings related to implementation progress of COVID-19 recovery plan in Southeast Asia.

Looking forward to meeting you at ITTP-COVID19 conference.

Prof. Dr. –Ing. Eko Supriyanto
