The Bilderberg Group and the project of European unification Prof. Mike Peters Introduction Despite their reputation for 'empiricism', British academics have tended to treat political power by means of abstract concepts rather than empirical information about the actions of determinate individuals and groups e.

This group acted as a prerequisite for the planned East Asia Community which was supposedly patterned after the now-defunct European Community. RCEP would, in part, allow the members to protect local sectors and give more time to comply with the aim for developed country members.
The Vision also aimed to: The ASEAN community revises and renews its vision every ten years to provide a framework for continuous development and further integration of the community. The terms in the Vision are divided into mainly four subcategories: Article 7 generally states the overall aspiration of the community aiming to achieve a united, inclusive and resilient community.
It also puts human and environmental security at the center of its aspirations.
Deepening engagement with both internal Members and eternal parties are also stressed to contribute the international peace, security and stability. There is also a call for greater level of ASEAN institutional presence at the national, regional and international levels.
Economic Community Blueprint[ edit ] This section needs to be updated. Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information.
On 20 Novemberduring the 13th ASEAN Summit in Singapore, its blueprint, which serves as a master plan guiding the establishment of the community, was adopted. The areas of co-operation include human resources development; recognition of professional qualifications; closer consultation on macroeconomic and financial policies; trade financing measures; enhanced infrastructure and communications connectivity; development of electronic transactions through e-ASEAN; integrating industries across the region to promote regional sourcing; and enhancing private sector involvement.
Through the free movement of skilled labour, goods, services and investment, ASEAN will rise globally as one market with each member gaining from each other's strengths, thus increasing its competitiveness and opportunities for development.
The blueprint also lays out the overall vision as well as the goals, implementing plans and strategies actionsas well as the strategic schedule timeline for achieving the establishment of the AEC by end While the financial integration is not going to take effect untilexperts from the financial services industry have already forecast a shaky economic transition, especially for smaller players in the banking and financial services industry.
The Philippines, with its overcrowded banking sector, for example, is among the ASEAN-member countries who are forecast to feel the most pressure as the integration welcomes tighter competition with the entry of bigger, more established foreign banks.
The implementation of the roadmap will contribute to the realisation of the AEC that was launched in October in Bali.
As in the EU, adoption of a common currency, when conditions are ripe, could be the final stage of the AEC. Under the roadmap, approaches and milestones have been identified in areas deemed crucial to financial and monetary integration, namely capital market development, capital account liberalisation, financial services liberalisation, and ASEAN currency co-operation.
Capital market development entails promoting institutional capacity, including the legal and regulatory framework, as well as the facilitation of greater cross-border collaboration, linkages, and harmonisation between capital markets in the region.
Orderly capital account liberalisation will be promoted with adequate safeguards against volatility and systemic risks. To expedite the process of financial services liberalisation, ASEAN has agreed on a positive list modality and adopted milestones to facilitate negotiations.
Currency co-operation would involve exploration of possible currency arrangements, including an ASEAN currency payment system for trade in local goods to reduce the demand for US dollars and to help promote stability of regional currencies, such as by settling intra-ASEAN trade using regional currencies.
The ASA preceded the financial crisis. It was originally established by the ASEAN central bank and monetary authorities of the five founding members of with a view to help countries meet temporary liquidity problems.
The supplementary facility aims to provide temporary financing for members which may be in balance-of-payments difficulties. These amendments are expected to fortify CMIM as the region's financial safety net in the event of any potential or actual liquidity difficulty.
On the other hand, the AMRO will, during crisis time, prepare recommendations on any swap request based on its macroeconomic analysis of the swap requesting member and monitor the use and impact of funds once any swap request is approved.
AMRO was officially incorporated as a company limited by guarantee in Singapore on 20 April and its office is at the Monetary Authority of Singapore complex in Singapore. In turn, the more ASEAN economies become integrated, the more feasible it is to adopt a single currency, which is expected to reinforce even further stability and integration.
