The objectives of the AEIF are two-folds i.e. to critically analyze the prospects and challenges of economic integration among ASEAN Member States and the region, and to discuss the socio-economic and political impacts of ASEAN’s economic integration on its member states and the region, taking into account the ASEAN Community 2025 Blueprint: “Forging Ahead Together”. Bruno Jetin made a presentation on “Poverty, Inequality and Social Cohesion in ASEAN countries”, an issue he has developed in the book coedited with Mia Mikic, chief of trade policy at UNESCAP, entitled “ASEAN Economic Policy: a Model for Asia-wide Integration” recently published by Palgrave McMillan.
