Asia Market Research

The Association for Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), which was founded in the 1960’s and its growth and direction over the course of 50-years lead to ASEAN formally launching the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in December 2015.

With the discourse now having shifted to the vision and direction for ASEAN 2025, it is timely to reflect on the past and future of ASEAN regional economic integration. What has ASEAN already achieved, and how? Is the AEC headed in the right direction? And, more importantly, can it do a better job of binding ASEAN member states to their commitments?

To address these questions, the ADV and ISEAS convened a workshop on the Evolving Nature of ASEAN’s Economic Cooperation and invited renowned economists and diplomats in the ASEAN region to attend.

This volume is a compilation of the papers presented at the workshop and they emphasize that, while there have been notable successes, ASEAN is still on its transition path in achieving full economic integration.
