The EAVG Report proposed 56 recommendations (22 of which they identified as being key) in six fields: economic, financial, political/security, environmental/energy, social/cultural/educational, and institutional co-operation.
The EASG Final Report, on the other hand, took from the EAVG recommendations 26 points which were organised into short-term measures and medium- to long-term measures.
At the same time, it should be evident that the significance of both the EAVG and EASG lists is the extent to which they require co-operative mechanisms to be addressed.
Both the EAVG and EASG Reports begin to hint at these issues.
The EAVG and EASG Reports emphasised the need to address health concerns, whether primary or major health issues such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.
In the case of the EAC, there are hints in the reports of the EAVG and the EASG that some degree of democratisation is part of the East Asian vision.
There are several references to this in the EAVG and EASG reports.
