ASEAN-

ASEAN is a union of South East Asian Nations. Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand constituted this association on August 8, 1967. Brunei also joined this ASEAN in 1984. In July 1995, Vietnam was also given its membership. Laos and Myanmar got its membership in 1997. On April 30, 1999, Combodia also became the member of ASEAN. At present, 10 countries are the member of ASEAN. The main objective of ASEAN is to promote economic cooperation in South East Asia and also to ensure economic stability in the region. Its headquarters is in Jakarta but a Secretary of ASEAN resides in capital of each member country. The Post of General Secretary of ASEAN is rotated among each member country alphabetically, after every two years.

On July 23, 1996, ASEAN gave advisory status to India. Besides India, China and Russia also got this status earlier. India cannot join the ASEAN as a member due to its geographical location. India is a part of south-Asia while ASEAN is an organisation of South East Asian Nations. It is planned to establish AFTA (ASEAN Free Trade Area) by 2003 AD.
