ASEAN

Half of Hawai’i’s foreign-born residents come from an ASEAN country and 3.5 million people born in ASEAN countries are living in the US.

ASEAN (The Association of Southeast Asian Nations) is an economic and geo-political organization comprised of ten countries that are located in Southeast Asia. ASEAN was formed on 8 August 1967 between Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. Since that time, membership has expanded to include some other Southeast Asian nations: Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Viet Nam. ASEAN’s aims include accelerating economic growth, social progress, cultural development and engagement among its members, protection of regional peace and stability, and creating opportunities to peacefully discuss differences between and with member countries. -ASEAN.org
