ASEAN is an economic union consisting of 10 member states in Southeast Asia, which promotes intergovernmental cooperation and facilitates economic, political, educational, security, military and socio-cultural integration between its members and other countries in Asia. The primary objective of ASEAN was to accelerate economic growth and then social progress and cultural development.

The 10 ASEAN member states (Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam) have a total population of over 600 million, making it the world’s third-largest labour force.
