Asean’s adherence to the principle of non-interference is its biggest hurdle to playing a more instrumental role in Rakhine. In the present administration, the partnership is strengthening.

I was very impressed by the regularity of such meetings, seriousness of sharing their domestic issues, and the camaraderie shown each other, which encourage mutual interactions and understanding, and collective actions. In the second round, Japan still had eight votes but the Philippines had six votes, yet there is still no majority. The increase in Japanese Official Development Assistance (ODA) to non-communist Southeast Asia proved the ASEAN’s role in connecting with Japan, therefore it has provided positive feedback to keep the Association in place, due to its ability to attract aid to the region.

After gaining independence from colonial powers, governments and people in Asia wanted to have such an institution in Asia. Nevertheless, ASEAN has achieved most of its goals as envisioned in the Bangkok Declaration which I identify them as successful. Many meetings were held under the auspices of  ECAFE (United Nations Economic Commission for Asia and the Far East) to discuss whether to set up such an institution as a trade finance company, a multilateral development bank, or as an advisory type of institution like the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). In the aftermath of the Asian financial crisis, I had witnessed the initial discussions leading to what will later become the Chiang Mai Initiative.
