Panel Discussion

Can ASEAN be the Driving Force for the Asian Century?

Home to more than 600 million people, ASEAN is at the heart of Asia Pacific, the growth engine of the world. The launch of ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) could take this region to the next level of prosperity. But the questions remain: Do the 10 member states have the will to achieve full economic integration? Will the integration not benefit just the strong and capable? Is ASEAN serious in building a “people-centered” community? Geopolitical shifts in power raise further questions : Can ASEAN hold on to its unity and centrality? And what constructive roles could Japan and the major powers play in the region? The panel will address these fundamental questions and discuss pragmatic ways forward. The discussion will be broadcast on NHK WORLD’s GLOBAL AGENDA.
