With a population of more than 600 million and a GDP of £1.9 trillion, ASEAN (the Association of Southeast Asian Nations), made up of Brunei Darussalam, Myanmar, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, is already a major economic force in Asia. It is the fastest-growing region in the world with economic growth and development expected to exceed the global average for the foreseeable future. As the economies of neighbouring China and India decelerate the region is increasingly becoming an important destination for British exports.
