The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is committed to promote economic growth, socio-cultural progress, and regional peace and stability.
Our goal is to enhance regional peace, stability and security, facilitate economic integration, and improve wellbeing and livelihoods for the peoples of ASEAN by building the ASEAN Community around three pillars:
- - Political-Security Community
- - Economic Community
- - Socio-Cultural Community
One vision, one identity, one community.
The ASEAN Secretariat is based in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The Member States of ASEAN (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam) have pledged to realise a people-oriented ASEAN Community by 2015. The Road Map for the ASEAN Community (2009-2015) sets out commitments which member States must strive to achieve by 2015. The ASEAN Secretariat seeks to facilitate the implementation of these commitments.
