CEDA also values its collaboration and partnership with various national and international research centers and academic institutions. We have established relationships with research centers from India, South Korea, Philippines, Indonesia, and other countries. Recently, we visited South Korea to renew our MoU with the Center for Regional Studies (Chonnam National University) and to have a two-way dialogue with Mokpo National University, which may be explored further in the future. We will also renew our MoU with other research centers that we have worked with in the past.

In addition to research, CEDA also organizes various academic events that stimulate intellectual discourse and knowledge exchange on national and international issues. These events include international conferences, national seminars, symposiums, and talk programs that bring together researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and stakeholders.
