The ASEAN Community started when 5Southeast Asian leaders decided to form a union to foster the bond within their respective nations. This union of Southeast Asian nations was created through the ASEAN Bangkok Declaration.  The countries included in this union are Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. Over the past years more countries have joined the ASEAN union including Brunei Darussalam, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia.


This union aims to help strengthen and stabilize each country’s economic growth and development. Basically, the ASEAN union was created to help Southeast Asian countries to develop Economic growth, Socio-cultural development and Political-Security. All of the plans made by the ASEAN union for the betterment of each member country are integrated in the ASEAN Economic Blueprint. Supposedly, the leaders of the ASEAN union have envisioned the completion of their goals by the year 2020 but they changed it to 2015 instead, to make sure that they can fast track the growth and development of their countries.


Through the ASEAN integration, member countries support each other in preventing the likes of rampant piracy, terrorism and drug trafficking. This initiative also aims to foster economic development meaning more job opportunities,more investors to develop industries,promote social responsibilities in times of disaster and more opportunities for education.
