A core part of our work is to promote awareness of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the grouping’s activities, and encourage processes of regional cooperation. Our research focuses on collective efforts to build connectivity in ASEAN, such as the ASEAN Economic Community established in 2015.
What does economic integration really mean for businesses and ordinary citizens in ASEAN? How can the concerns of citizens be better reflected in the decision-making processes of ASEAN member governments?
Our research and events explore the key priorities for ASEAN, especially as the grouping moves beyond 2015. The SIIA also conducts seminars, workshops, corporate briefings and conferences on ASEAN and countries within the ASEAN grouping.
