Asian Nations (ASEAN) has not only consolidated associations aim and
objectives, but also paved way for its future development prospects.
ASEAN has established itself not only as a regional groups for
cooperation and stability but also as a forum to interact with world
bodies for greater inclusive growth of the Asian countries. The forum
has been successful in incentivising the trade and political
cooperation which is visible from the outcome of the recent elections
in Mayanmar and resolution of South China sea which India has
persuaded to declare it as a common asset for the south Asian nations.
The forum can play more robust role in fighting hunger and terrorism.
A strong trade and commerce can pave path for greater cooperation in
the field of education, health and infrastructure development in the
Asian countries. We have good amount of resource and capabilities
which must be harnessed for mutual development.
