About the ASEAN community
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is a political and economic union that aims to accelerate economic growth, social progress, and regional stability in South East Asia. It contains 9% of the world’s population, and would rank as the seventh largest economy in the world if it were a single nation.
2015 is a pivotal year in the history of Bangkok, Thailand and South East Asia as a whole. Earlier this year, the ASEAN Economic Community was established – bringing together over 600 million people in Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia and the Philippines in a single market with free trade and movement across borders.
In order to help young people play a greater role in the development of the ASEAN community, C asean will sponsor two young leaders from the region to attend the One Young World Summit 2015.
