Building an East Asian Community Through Trade and Investment Integration
AbstractIn the Fifth Summit of the ASEAN Plus Tree (APT) Leaders, the vision for an East Asian community - i.e., an East Asia that moves "from a region of nations to a bona fide regional community with shared challenges, common aspirations, and a parallel destiny" was articulated. Various motivations underlie this effort, namely, the need to establish a regional (institutional) identity in view of other existing regional arrangements; the need to amplify an East Asian voice on regional and global issues; and the need to promote regional peace and prosperity through cooperation, given the region's own internal dynamics.
