Home to more than 600 million people, ASEAN has a population that is larger than the EU or North America. ASEAN possesses immense growth potential and is a notable global hub of manufacturing and trade, as well as one of the fastest-growing consumer markets in the world.
Despite these strengths, ASEAN has never been able to realize its full political and economic potential. What are the main impediments holding ASEAN back? Can ASEAN play a role in re-shaping a new regional order within the Asia – Pacific region? Can ASEAN emerge as a force on the global stage?
