People Centered ASEAN

In the statement of the 5th ERIA Governing Board Meeting on June 23, 2012, it states that “In ASEAN and East Asia, the efforts for community building will take a people-centered approach, intended to bring the benefit of integration to ordinary people, achieving inclusive growth. In doing so, special consideration shall be paid to the variety and differences of socio-cultural background and economic situation. Measures to narrow the gaps not only among countries but also within each country are essential, with policies aiming at economic growth, with a well designated redistribution system, social safety nets, and education and also utilizing dyanamism generated through connectivity”.
